pop of yellow
these are birthday flowers from my coworker. i never (ever) keep fresh flowers in the apartment because i'm one of those people who lets my cat dictate my life completely, and most plants are poisonous to our little feline friends. but such a thoughtful gift prompted me to let go a bit, so i snipped the ends, put them in water and set them atop our highest shelf (which happens to be in the kitchen, so it gets pretty decent light).
the bright pop of yellow, especially with our green wall as a backdrop, brings such joy into the space that i think i'll keep up with a weekly bouquet of something colorful and beautiful. as long as penny doesn't figure out how to get up there, that is.
