I hope everyone has a great day today.  Remember to do something to make a loved one happy and feel appreciated.  Do something nice for yourself, too.

The five most popular flowers on Valentine’s Day are 1) the rose, 2) the carnation, 3) lilies, 4) alstroemeria, and 5) tulips.

Personally, I would rather have a rose bush than a bouquet of roses, that way I could plant it and have roses for years to come.  Does this mean I am not romantic?  I think that blooming potted plants also make good gifts at this time of year.  That way you can have flowers in the house to brighten a winter day and still have them last longer than a week.

How about a garden bench for two?  A romantic little bistro set for the garden?  See there are all kinds of ideas besides flowers and candy for a gardener. 

I just hope a certain person that I know can take a hint.  And I hope you all have a Happy St. Valentine’s Day.
