A thing about Valentine’s day that I think about every year:
What is it with all of these cut flowers?
I mean, I personally am not a huge fan of dead things, and while I like cutting flowers from my own plants to bring inside, or think they’re a nice gift from a friend if they cut them from their own plants, like…why buy them from a store?
Apparently, for a lot of people, nothing says love like something short-lived that you get to watch as it decays?
Not that I have a significant romantic person in my life right now but if/when I do, just, like…buy me a seed packet and a starter tray, or a cute little potted plant, or something. Something that will live, and that I can plant in my yard and enjoy at least until the next year, or if it’s a perennial, maybe a couple more years.
