Almost at the top of my list of things to do/have when I'm rich is to always have fresh flowers in the house. Mum adores fresh flowers and she passed that love on to me, so whenever I can I have flowers in the house.
Being on a budget, this means other than those very lovely days when someone buys me flowers, flowers in the house come from the garden. It can be hard when the garden is bare in the middle of winter to walk past the fresh flowers in the supermarket, but in a glorious spring like this one, those shopping centre displays have nothing on the bounty I have access to.
My roses have been hinting at the blooms to come for weeks, but now the buds have burst forth and I have so many roses I was able to fill two vases and create this gorgeous display on our dining room table. The soft scent of rose drifts through the house and they fill my heart with joy every time I see them.
If the day comes when I can afford to buy flowers whenever I feel like it, I think those I've grown myself will still be my favourites.
What is on your "rich list". A house cleaner and dinner out once a week is also on mine.
