We celebrate in spirit rather than in practice… to me it’s always seemed wrong to buy roses in February (especially when the roses have more air miles than I do!). We enjoy romantic gestures and being spoilt but that should be in little ways every day of the year rather than waiting for one or two days.
These baby Aloe Vera are a perfect idea for a fuss free pyjama girl… as well as a lovely home cooked meal and sharing a glass of wine or two. Besides, the money saved by foregoing roses, chocolates & champagne will buy enough pretty flowers to plant in spring and fill the house with scent until Autumn. This just proves that gardeners are not tight with money – just extremely practical!!!
