of undertaking Apartment Therapy’s Cure? Weekly flowers.
At least, that’s what I would have said at the outset. Hands down … the best part … weekly flowers. Not just permission to spend the $10 on flowers that are destined to wilt and die, but laying down the law that this is something you will build into your budget.
How wonderful is that?
The first few weeks were nothing but tulips. What a treat!
They were easy to purchase. One bunch of a single color, as tight as I could find so they’d last as long as possible.
Slowly, I tried others:
The Tea Roses caught me off guard. Typically, I hate roses. Or at least that’s what I’ve said the last *cough* years, but I just kept coming back to these.
Bonus: A couple of branches were broken, which meant I had buds all over. The main spray in the main room, but then buds in unexpected places: by the kitchen sink, in the bathroom, on my nightstand …
Some red flowers to go with my RED iPod:
and lastly, some white flowers that have bloomed their hearts out for weeks!
Yes, at the outset of this, I would have said the weekly flowers were going to be the highlight. With the end in sight, however, I think I was wrong. I think the best part is turning my apartment into a home.
