Flower Salad

Happy National Plant a Flower Day!

Did you know, today 3/12 is the day to plant a flower and admire how beautiful they are!  


Spring is around the corner, and what spring’s best trait is that flowers are blooming. I remember going to Carlsbad Flower Field in Southern California and the tulip festival in Skagit Valley, Seattle. After going there, I get busy choosing which picture to make for my wallpaper on my computer, tablet, phone or even print! In fact one of our best pictures taken in Carlsbad is printed out and hangs on our apartment wall. 


I’m lucky to have a balcony in my current apartment, but I’d never lived in an apartment with a balcony when I was in LA and Seattle. So especially for you without a balcony and having trouble planting some flowers, let’s plant them on a plate and admire the beauty of flowers:)
