These are better than roses. Our front planter has been seriously neglected and I haven't had the time to do anything but shake my head at it... but my husband bought me flowers, and mulch, and killed all the weeds, and yanked out the half-dead plants (ok, he paid a friend to do it, but he got it done):
And didn't he pick pretty flowers!?! It's just fabulous!!!!
And he managed to take my car to the mechanic for new tires and an alignment and all that good stuff that will keep it from falling off the road with me in it!
Never mind about the empty toilet paper roll...
I have flowers!
And new, balanced and aligned, tires!
