|these daffodils, lilacs and Solomon's seal |
are the current bouquet on the kitchen table
The answer is not the obvious. It's not simply so that I don't go out and buy bouquets of flowers.
Our house will likely be our largest purchase, for my husband and myself. A house is meant to be lived in. It wouldn't make much sense to spend our hard-earned and saved money on a purchase that we didn't fully use.
By keeping our home as lovely as we can, we reap the benefits of homeownership, by actually spending more time in our home.
And when I bring cut flowers into the house from our garden, the beauty of those arrangements inspires me to keep the rest of our home as lovely as a garden bouquet. As a result, we find our home to be a very inviting place. We're taking full advantage of this major purchase of our home.
