I stopped by Trader Joe's today and bought some flowers. I usually buy pink one but was ready for a change. As you can see I picked out red and purple. I love them. When I got home I pulled my aunts cool pitcher out of the pantry and filled it up. Had to resort to a knife to cut the stalks to the stock . You should have seen me sawing through the thick stems. I took it in the living room and put it on a pretty little dish I picked up at a garage sale. I am in love.
