Affordable Luxuries # 9: Primroses

I found two primroses or "first roses" at the super market the other day. I know they are fragile and won't last long but they are such cheerful plants - like something a child would dream up.

They are also a harbinger of Spring which seems very far off right now, but really isn't. So while they signal the flowers will be back soon, I am also using them as a reminder to enjoy winter while it lasts.

When I buy flowers for my kitchen table, I smile every time I see them. I guess flowers are, as Martha Steward would say, a "good thing."

Hi Belle, I love flowers on my kitchen table. When ever I get flowers I wish I had more time to just look at them.
