My mom bought me these beautiful flowers 'just because' when we were at trader joe's. I had them in a vase that wasn't working and just decided to use my spaghetti noodle vase to house them instead and it's working better. I'm not a flower arranger by any means and these could probably get cut another inch from the bottom or so but that's not the point. The point is I'm grateful for colorful flowers which brighten my kitchen and my day while we're 'in between' seasons. Thanks Mom!
