When my honey Himself went out to get the fried fish for last night's supper, he also brought back a bunch of alstroemeria. I made him stop buying flowers for Hallmark Holidays, since they always bump the price up and the quality seems lower. Instead, he'll pop in with a bunch of baby carnations or daisies, or something like these alstroemeria, "Just Because". They're on my kitchen windowsill now. I'll be working in the kitchen a lot tonight.

Thanks, ladies. And to think they are grocery store flowers! Amazing how nice the quality can be sometimes. And, usually, the price is right.

True story. When working in the mall as gift wrappers, we got to see all sorts of nice things people purchased. When guys would show up with purchases from a jewelry store, Vickie's, and Godiva's, we would always ask "How much trouble are you in???". One time, one of the guys said "do you have a florist in the mall?". We then gave him directions to the closest flower stand...across the parking lot at the mall's grocery store.

Very pretty flowers CG and so thoughtful of Himself! Nice view from your kitchen window, too. Flowers can be very nice from the grocery store - I've had them last longer than the spendy ones from the flower shop.

Many years ago my husband bought me several bouquets from the grocery store for our anniversary. The checker smiled and said "....this must be a Mars/Venus thing...?" This was back when that book was popular.

Love your flowers, CG! Nothing wrong with grocery store flowers!

Thanks guys! No complaints with grocery store flowers. Heck, the chance of many a husband picking up a bouquet there vs making a stop at a florist are pretty good. I stopped at the same store the day after Himself ran out for the fish, and the guy in front of me had a 6-pack of beer - and flowers for his lady! There must be something in the air.

Thanks. That view, however, is the reason it takes me so long to do anything at the sink/counter! Had I shot the photo from the other angle, showing more yard, you would have seen a lot of birds hanging around my feeders. Sweet little things, but oh so hungry.
