"IT SMELLS LIKE A FUNERAL HOME!"
I never thought that I could have TOO many bouquets of flowers in the house, but I might reconsider.
Last week I had a meeting scheduled at our house and I wanted to have fresh flower arrangements throughout the house. I didn't have a single flower blooming in the yard. Our niece Robin had told me that I was welcome to come by to cut some flowers from her yard.
I had picked several bunches of different flowers and Robin kept encouraging me to pick more! I had black-eyed Susans, gladioli, cosmos, bachelor's buttons, amaryllis, zinnias, hydrangeas, and even crysanthemums (blooming already!) gathered. I had more than enough flowers for arrangements for every room.
After I'd completed 12 arrangements, competing scents were wafting throughout the house. When a brother walked in he said, "It smells like a funeral home!"
Perhaps one CAN have too many flowers in the house!
