How is this possible?

Look how beautiful the flowers were at the grocery store yesterday! As you know, I am all about the beautiful white winter landscape we gaze upon these days, but February does tend to make me lose sight of warm weather, and ocean breezes, and feeling the sun on my arms. That all seems too far away sometimes; these flowers do give me just the reminder I need that spring will indeed come, just when we need it.

I am always stunned at these luscious displays of gorgeousness -- right there next to the boxed wine! How do the grocers manage to provide this jolt of summer color in the middle of winter -- and keep the cost down too?

Actually, I suspect I don't want to know the answer, which will involve giant carbon footprints and flower growers in South America who are taken advantage of.

But gosh! Aren't they lovely?
