Flowers at home
It's kind of a new habit to me, but I discovered how much of a difference it made. It made my apartment feel much more "lived-in", and I loved having all the beautiful colors around.
I don't want to spend much on it. Generally my max is $10 pr. week, but I usually find something cheaper. I buy them at my local grocery store, because it's convenient, and I know I wouldn't get around to do it, if it wasn't. The quality is not that of a flower shop, and they don't last as long.
The bottom photo is what's in my apartment right now, and they are some of my favourites! I just love, love pink roses. The top photo are the best flowers I ever had here.
They are from my grandparent's garden, and they brought me them for my birthday this past Saturday. They goes perfectly with the painting my sister made for me.
Apart from cut flowers, I also have some garden herbs, like estragon, basil and parsley(Well, ok, my parsley is kind of dying). I also have an orchid, that was flowering so beautifully, but then my cat ate it. Tough life.
Having fresh flowers in your home, makes such a huge difference and such an impact on people feeling welcome and perceiving it as a nice space. Best habit I ever picked up!
