This is the time of year I am most tempted to buy flowers. From the violets and daffodils of April to the poinsettias of December, there is usually something floral going on in the yard, except in the case of the poinsettias, which I buy, of course. I saved this year's amaryllis for January, but alas, it has bloomed its last. I was flowerless. That is, until I saw these little sweeties at Aldi for 99 cents. At that price, I bought two. They are heartening, aren't they?
