I've done this three times already (once for Noelle's meme last month; another a few weeks ago, when I was camera-less!; and again, just a week or so ago)--just because I enjoyed it so much and wanted to do it again.
I didn't actually remember it was time for it again, but I just happened to go out yesterday and pick a few small flowers and place them in a miniature vase.
As it turned out, the timing was just right to join in with Noelle.
I didn't take any photos of the little arrangement I created last week, but it just proved to me that I'm no longer afraid to pick a couple of flowers to enjoy them on my windowsill.
Why not? The absence of them is barely noticeable in the garden and the joy they bring into the kitchen is unmeasurable!
Give it a try and post it for Noelle's bouquet of the month!
Today I am thankful for little flowers with a big punch!
