As women we often forget to do something special for ourselves. We are so used to doing for other's! This week I decided to do something just for me!
Even though I love crafting and decorating, what I truly love is gardening! That's one of the reasons we moved to Georgia, so I'd be able to garden 9 months out of the year! I've been checking every day to see if anything is blooming and a few tiny things are starting to peek out from the cold earth. I needed a garden fix! Usually buying a bouquet of flowers at Kroger does it for me. But this time I needed more!
I've been forcing bulbs since Thanksgiving. First Paperwhites and Amaryllis, then Hyacinths. I was also lucky enough to get some petite daffodils on clearance at Kroger
So when I was at Lowe's this week and saw that they had rows and rows of cheerful Primroses. I had to bring two of them home with me.
I put all my flowering bulbs and an ivy plant together on a pretty silver tray and created a little portable indoor garden for myself!
The Hyacinths smell so wonderful and tending to these plants is almost like tending my real garden. It lifts my spirits!
So treat yourself to a bouquet of flowers from the grocery store or force some bulbs or flowering branches if your like me and miss your garden. Or buy yourself a nice smelling candle and be sure you light it. Make yourself a special cup of tea or coffee and sit down and read a favorite book or look through a magazine. Do something special for yourself!
