As I'm writing this, Kansas City is coming out of some of the coldest weather in years. About half the people I know had frozen pipes or experienced rolling blackouts planned by the power company to keep the whole grid from collapsing. I feel lucky that we were able to avoid both.
If the forecast holds, the day I plan to publish this will be in the 50s...seems crazy, because that's less than a week from now. MIDWEST, AMIRITE!?
So, anyway, I've been dreaming of spring and flowers and bike rides; therefore, I am collecting some of my prettiest Bathroom Flowers TM from 2020 to share in this pre-springtime.
Wood hyacinth, dandelions, chickweed, dead nettle, henbit, grape hyacinth, violets, bachelor's purse, and strawberry leaves. Little sweet things that are early bloomers and seen as weeds by many.
|First Bathroom Flowers TM of the year!|
|This honker lasted a long time and this vase is not for sale.|

|Love this Queen's Vessel. Holds some girthy blooms.|
|Take all the scraps and stick them together!|
Through many channels I've been able to identify most flowers I come across while walking or biking around. I was a flower-shop worker for a number of years, and, honestly, I'm better at arranging now...just like with drawing, sometimes things just have to marinate for a while in your brain juices for them to fully sink in.
Hope you enjoyed this little detour, I have many more...it's a good reason to keep my bathroom counter cleared off.
I post my Bathroom Flowers TM over on my Instagram in real time! You can see where I get my blooms and how they fit in my bike basket.
