Why I always buy cut flowers
I sincerely wanted to take this poll, mainly because polls are fun, but couldn't participate. For me this is one of those "When are you going to stop beating your wife?" situations.
I really, really love buying flowers at all times. Even when the garden is producing cut flowers (never enough) I usually find myself supplementing them, particularly for special occasions.
But there doesn't have to be an occasion. Here it is, an ordinary Monday, and I'm looking across the room at a vase of white roses and some ornamental berries, while in other rooms there are a variety of arrangements. When the bulbs get going, I'll have less room, but I actually look forward to winter for one reason—there is every excuse to buy flowers. Not that I need any.
