Fresh lavender: A peaceful way to begin the week

14 Jul

In my book, the only thing better than breathing fresh air is breathing fresh lavender!

I was thinking about lavender the other day, and wondered if TJ’s would be offering buckets of cut stems any time soon. Then I went to pick up a few things and lo and behold…

Trader Joe's welcomes customers with fresh lavender

A fragrant welcome

Maybe I should try thinking about winning the lottery, and then buy a ticket?

Another pretty breath of spring – Tulip time at TJ’s

15 Feb

When daffodils are around, tulips can’t be far behind. And they’re not, at Trader Joe’s.

Ah, spring!

Poetry in a bunch

It’s tulip time at Trader Joe’s

Daffodils when it rains. Perfect. Just what I needed.

30 Jan

The world’s been a little topsy turvy lately, and the weather has been leading the tumult.

Yesterday, in Kansas City, we hit a record high of 76 degrees for that day. Thunderstorms overnight left us with a still-balmy awakening, but by mid morning the temperature started turning south, and it was downright chills and drizzle by the time I left work and headed for a quick trip to Trader Joe’s.

I was carried through the entryway in a swirl of floral scents, but I was rushing in from the cold and didn’t take as much notice as when I was leaving.

On my way out, I lingered to whiff a while. Just standing still, letting go of the day’s rush and filling my lungs with daffodil air made me feel so good. On a cold and dreary night, the little plants, sitting pretty like it was a sunny spring day, were just what I needed. A wintertime spirit lifter.

Thanks much, Trader Joe’s.
