Notes From the Office: Fresh-Cut Flowers
I’ve been wanting to share with you the fresh-cut flowers I’ve had in my home office lately. They brighten up my office, especially on days that are overcast and gloomy.
I brought home three packages of gerbera daisies recently from the greenhouse where my mom works. The sales staff was going to throw away these daisies because they couldn’t sell them anymore. They only lasted about a week so maybe they weren’t as fresh anymore. But I’m not picky!
This next bouquet lasted over two weeks before I had to replace them with the above fresh finds.
It turns out having weekly fresh-cut flowers also provides wonderful inspiration and drawing reference, especially this time of year when nature in my yard is slowing down and going dormant for the upcoming winter months.
I was happy to learn that a local grocery store sells fresh-cut flowers for a great price and a great selection. It’s such a treat to have flowers on my desk these days!
