Sometimes I will get a mason jar and go outside to stroll around the container plants, looking to see what has just bloomed. It is where I gather bouquets from the garden.
I find this to be a really relaxing endeavor. Just walking about and enjoying the view and the scent of my gardens. Listening to the birds up in the trees.
The dogs will do their normal sniffing around, as dogs always 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.
I end up with this simple bouquet to enjoy indoors, 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, simply enjoying the scent of the bouquet mixing with the scent of my candle.
And here is where I can enjoy the view in my little apartment. It is where the simple life is the best life I could dream of.
