A Springtime “What If…”

Flower Head

Spring is in the air! Kind of. And the flowers are in full bloom! Sort of. The warmer weather is slowly, maybe, almost getting here? As I walk the streets these days, my head full of thoughts of sunshine and my hair blowing in the breeze, I can’t help but think of the obvious question: what if… we grew flowers instead of hair?

Imagine it. Maybe you would have a cleanly cut head of grass. Or a wild head full of overgrown weeds. Perhaps a head of mushrooms, if the sunshine wasn’t really your thing. Or a head of lush colorful flowers, if you love to soak up the rays. We’d have little portable gardens that we could take everywhere. Wanna give your sweetheart a flower? Just pluck it from your head! Wanna wear a garden gnome as a hat? That makes perfect sense! Looking for style tips? Pick up the latest issue of Better Homes and Gardens!
