Unlike GG and Jane over at Small but Charming, I am a champion sloth when it comes to garden and house. About twice a year I freshen up our sheet, towel and couch cover inventory. I get rid of old pans, paint the stairway, wash the curtains, but day to day I'm hopeless. I hire someone to clean up the front garden; the back is au natural - great for birds though.
Joe does the laundry. We share the cooking. He does the vacuuming. I clean the bathroom sink. Joe does the bathtub. It's a piecemeal arrangement but it keeps us off of reality t.v. I don't bring flowers from the shop usually unless we're having company.
But I tiptoed out front this morning with good intentions and did a little clipping: some autumn clematis, some hydrangea, a little spirea, and some pretty ferns that last about a day in water. It was a sad collection.
so, instead I present to you the best flower I have in the house. You've met him before. I picked him seven years ago and he's still fresh!!!
I give you Blossom at his handsomest and quietest, ever. No vase required.
So visit the good gardeners and diligent housekeepers over at Jane's to see their efforts for her monthly Flowers in the House.
