Thank you so much for your comment on my blog. Yes! Flowers are a great way to feed ourselves. I am like you. I don't like anyone to spend too much on them, but when my husband has gotten them for me on our anniversary I smell them constantly, photograph them and just love looking at them. I love staring at the flowers in our garden too. Once at Trader Joe's after Valentine's day they were giving out free bouquets of roses because the ordered too many. It was my lucky day!
