What I am actually more pleased with, truth be forever told, is that all of the pictured flowers came from one of my gardens. There are zinnias, sunflowers, marigolds, cosmos, impatiens, and a few other flowers whose names escape me at the moment. Not only was I able to create a week's worth of indoor beauty, but I could do so at virtually no cost, and I have money left over to buy top weight loss pills, were I so inclined and possessing the necessary cash.
Well, except for the planting, and the water, and the weeding, and the TLC and all that. OK, this display actually cost me about $200 in labor and material costs if you add up all my time, but it's the principle, right?
