Come Monday, the last Monday of the month it's FITH, or Flowers In The House to the uninitiated.
If you're like me you'll sneak out in the a.m., clippers in hand and cut as many flowers as possible before the temperature hits 100 degrees.
Then you'll rush inside, plunge them in pitchers of tepid water and let them drink to their hearts content before you fill your favorite containers full of summer and place them about the house.
Or maybe you'll drop by your farmers market and grab an armful of hydrangea or zinnias, bring them home and plunge them.....you know the routine.
But join us please for this monthly event.
We've had some sad times here this past month and you've graciously read and commented on them. Now I'd like to celebrate the good times the way I know best: with flowers.
I'll be posting what I'm celebrating along with my arrangements next Monday. Maybe you'll do the same?
Here's a little something something I'm bringing to an Olympic party tonight.
Say it with your heart, say it with flowers.
