Baby's Breath Love

Not long ago, I would take all of the baby's breath out of the rose bouquets my husband would bring home - and throw it away!
Now, I just love this delicate flower.
After all the Christmas was put away, I needed something. And I think baby's breath is the perfect flower for all seasons...reminds me of snow, in a way.
And its beautiful in the spring and summer too.
It's just what my home needed to get through the rest of the dreary winter.
And it's inexpensive too, look for some in your supermarket.

I've always loved baby's breath! Ideal for making wreaths too.
Wish my husband would bring flowers home for a change, haha, he never does though, so that would be a BIG surprise ;-)
