One thing that flower gardeners have is a lot of flowers. The question is: Do you bring them inside?

And it's really odd. My favorite room for fresh flowers is the bathrooms, then the living room coffee table or side tables. I like the reflection of the flowers in the bathroom mirror. Everything in the bathrooms is hard surface and the flowers soften that. I am known to cut just about anything for an arrangement. I like the BOP leaves as a backdrop for some cut flowers. I like my tiny Toad Flax in assorted colors in Spring. My roses and some shrubs. I have a few feathers I like to include during Summer when flowers are few and crispy!

I was just reminded of something. Some people like fresh flowers in their automobiles. Old vintage cars a la Packard era etc. had interior vase holders on the frame between the front and back seats.

Maybe you've just shown us a new use for the 26 cup holders that are in vehicles today Thumbs up

I've never figured out why they have more cup holders than people will fit in a vehicle Confused

I had totally forgotten about the vases in older cars! Ahhhhhh- back when life was a bit slower and you could stop and smell the roses...or smell while you went! Hilarious!
