Speaking of emerging blooms, what better way to give you a nice taste of the onrushing spring than some nice, cut flowers?
Color, texture, fragrance (sometimes) -- a good solution to the winter blahs and spring fever. Give yourself a boost!
You don't even have to shell out lots of money for this. Yes, cut flowers are pretty pricey (especially when compared to getting them from your own garden), but you don't need the top-end flowers to give you a taste of what you're longing for. Even a bunch of the cheapest blooms will give your spirits a lift.
One piece of advice though...
If the blooms are pollen-bearing, make sure your white pets stay away.
They're as eager for a taste of spring as you are!
