Ahh Valentine’s day. The day to buy and send flowers to a loved one. Rather than cut flowers, why not send (or buy for yourself like I did) a potted plant? Let me explain. I’m not talking about a potted fern. No, no, no. Flowers are still better. And, you’ll probably save some money in the process.
Take this mini rose bush I bought at the grocery store for five bucks. It’s cute, and at least $20 cheaper than cut roses.
It will most likely live longer than cut flowers, too. Even under my care, it should last longer.
But you know what I really liked about this little plant? Come spring, I can dig a hole in our rose bed and pop it in to enjoy for years to come.
Thus adding more green to our environment and saving some dough. And that makes for a very happy Valentine’s day.
You know what else makes Valentine’s day better? Heart-shaped pancakes, hand-made Valentines, and two cute little boys.
What are your Valentine plans? Going somewhere special? Making dinner? Do you exchange Valentine gifts?
