So, I have to admit, I don't love flowers the same way that Drea does. Yes, they're beautiful and fragrant, plus many are beneficial for your health and attract a multitude of happy little critters. But, I tend to gravitate towards green and leafy over pretty petals most days. I don't even really know why. However, that doesn't mean I don't break out in a ridiculous happy dance and goofy grin when I spot the first little buds around my neighborhood after a seemingly never-ending winter.
A grey, flowerless winter is just no fun, no matter where you fall on the blossom-enthusiast-spectrum. But there's a loop hole! Some plants bloom and thrive indoors throughout the winter months. A little color and life on your windowsill can make a world of difference when you're hunkered down avoiding the cold. All they need is bright light, cool temps and well-drained soil. So, write these down, take a trip to your local garden center and curb those winter blues!
from drea: flowers, duh. also: I didn't mean to have two back to back garden/plant-iful posts back to back, but it happened. One for my weather and one for yours! Another side note: It was suggested that the cookbook be titled "a plantiful table" but I kept accidentally saying "a plantable table." This obviously works for no one. Yay flowers. Yay plants. And plants ON a table!
