Sometimes I will get a mason jar and go outside, strolling around the container plants, looking to see what’s bloomed.
I find this to be a really relaxing endeavor. Just walking about, enjoying the view. Listening to the birds up in the trees.
The dogs will do their normal sniffing around, as dogs do when they go outside.
I take my clippers, and choose some blooms.
It’s not a fancy bouquet I end up with. But the perfume is heady and the many colors make me happy.
And I end up with something like this to enjoy indoors for a few days, while the plants outside gather their energy to create more blooms.
Sometimes I take the mason jar lid and put a votive candle in it, and light it up, just for the satisfaction of it.
And enjoy the view in my little apartment. Where the simple life is always the best life I could dream of.
