Do you buy fresh flowers for your house every week?

I love doing this, it's an indulgence but it makes me happy. Do you do this? Or what's your weekly indulgence/splurge?

Does it count that my three year old daughter proudly brings me gifts of weeds or flowers she's pulled from the garden?

Yes, but I'm a florist 😂😂😂

 Do you have any recommendations on robust flowers that tend to last for a while please?

 Natives will last a long time. Oriental lillies can also last a few weeks with proper care. Depends on what you like, they are just some of my fave. Just re cut stems, change water, keep away from heater vents etc. I have some orientals in my room atm that have been here for 3 weeks. Looking beautiful still.

No, I get sad when they die... I indulge in books... 🙈 I know I have to many but won’t stop getting more! Oh and chocolate! Enjoy your flowers! 🌸

I play a keno same time each week. Its worth 50 dollars. Have been playing it for months. At last week i was 14 dollars ahead. If i was just losing 50 bucks each week i wouldnt be doing it.

If you spend $20 a week that’s $1040

  If they can afford it and it makes them happy them good on them.

Love fresh flowers, but they are expensive and most of my favourites tend to doe quickly :( i tend to buy potted plants more nowdays

I used to. But these days we just can't justify the expense. I'd love to get some of those wooden flowers for the house, but they're expensive.

No. But I have a rose garden and will sometimes have a bunch of roses from those when they are in bloom.

I wish! Occasionally I will pick the odd flower hanging over someone’s fence and pop it in a little vessel.

Yep I do 😁 I drove an hour and a half to the flower market last week ... currently have two lovely big market bunches that I move around the house often.
$35 well spent (plus the fuel)
I often order myself delivery from a local lady in town, the markets are a fun outing too every couple of weeks
