With school canceled due to an impending snow storm, we stay warm inside and have a quiet day.
But then I observe my favorite flower–the Stargazer Lily– and my new favorite, Orange Ranunculus, in the bouquet a dear friend purchased for me last night.
A bouquet of fresh cut flowers represents undeserved luxury today; fresh cut flowers taunt that heavy, persistent snow outside.
My daughter points out how many unopened blooms wait in that bouquet. Several ranunculus and one or two more lilies will bloom in days to come.
Bringing someone beautiful flowers is one way to live with flair. These flowers cost only a few dollars, and they bring so much joy.
Besides flowers, what else brings some joy in a long winter?
