Happy Valentine's Day

Ben tells me Friday night, as we're making dinner, that he has to ruin my surprise. Uhh... Ok?

He explains to me that he was going to order me flowers for Valentine's day like he did last year.

But unfortunately, by the time he went to order them the other day, the bouquet that I loved so much last year was sold out. So he decided that instead of getting me a different one, we would go to Home Depot and I could pick out some live flowers! He figured I would like that best anyways, since I have been wanting flowers so badly.

Yes! Best Valentine's gift ever. I told him it was so much nicer this way because they would stay around for longer than a week and I could enjoy them.

So we went to Home Depot and he let me pick whatever I wanted. We got daffodils, tulips, a package each of yellow pansies and purple pansies...

And these, which are my favorite. They are Violas and I just love their little faces. They look like they have little whiskers. I wish you could see from the photo, but it's just not clear enough, how perfect those little lines are. They look like they've been painted on one by one.

I hope your Valentine's Day turns out as wonderfully sweet as my early one did!


P.S. This is going to count as my 365 for the day. And I'm starting to think that maybe that 365 goal is not such a good one. Starting to hate taking pictures because I have to do it every day is not so much fun and kind of kills the point.

Okay, those are the best kind of Valentine's flowers. You need to get a wide shot of your flowerbed, though, and show us how they all look together! :-)

Happy Valentine's Day to you, too, Meg! Your flowers are so pretty!

Why not abandon the 365 challenge altogether? I hear you about feeling pressured... it's no fun! You thrive on natural inspiration (that's what draws me to your blog in the first place). I feel like I have so many things in my life that must be organised (kids, work, house, etc.) and whenever I put pressure on myself for the blog I lose interest. Why not just let it be what it is? It's great like that! xoxo

Lovely flowers and lovely husband. I am glad you had a great day. Hey, taking pictures is a fun thing not a chore, just enjoy life and your new camera. You have your hands so full. I love your pictures of your flowers.
