Flowers are so pretty and i have most definately used them this year to help me through some difficult times. I have yet to meet a person that does not like flowers. It has been a busy month for me in the garden, early morning planting and weeding last thing at night. I barely get time to keep up with my freelance writing job and keep on top of the housework ( and be a mum!) but i love my garden so much and i like to keep it nice. One of my main interests is gardening and i would love to document my teachings seven days a week if i could but at this time of year especially, the garden just does not pay the bills. So as the season comes to an end i will keep my blog polished and running on a wide range of posts from styling to advice on how i look after my indoor plants.
By spring the terracotta pots will be filled with tulips in an array of colour and i will be using the cut flowers to style photographs again. Even my Daughter loves to pick treasures from the garden and arrange them on boards or in frames in the play house on a rainy day.
So how can flowers make you feel happy?
The satisfaction from growing your own cut flowers and putting them in a vase in the living room is undeniably rewarding, although sometimes due to weather or living conditions it is not viable for us to grow our own. Buying a bunch and arranging in a vase can be just as rewarding and will brighten up any room in the house. Depending on what time of year it is, greenery such as holly leaves or heather can be added to your display.
We made this wreath with heather from our local woods but using the heather to display in a glass jar or a milk jug would have looked really nice too.
I hope flowers can perk you up as much as they have me this year and even in the winter there is always some color to find if you look hard enough.
Work on yourself flower xx
