The Power of Flowers

Is it me or do you wish it was Spring right now!

Whilst looking outside into my garden this morning, I thought about how dull and grey everything seems to look this time of year.
That made me start thinking about how much nicer my garden looks in the summer.
Which then....made me think how I should go out today and buy lots of fresh flowers to brighten up my house.

Flowers are amazing, we use them in so many ways.
How sad it would be without them?
The don't just look nice, or smell nice.
They even have the power to heal us.
Wow !
Flowers are a real tonic aren't they?
Pure colour therapy, they say so much.
With Valentines coming up, it's all about Love at the moment, using red to say it.

But I seemed to prefer subtler colours, pinks, white and pale blues.
I wondered what your favourite flowers is?

I love these candles.
Tulips are such a great and inexpensive way of adding some much needed colour to your home at this time off year.

Peonies have to be one of my all time favourites.

Now I am sitting here thinking about how when I look around I have so many things with flowers on them, fabrics, wallpapers, bags, pictures, and even the mug I am drinking from has flowers on it.

Right best go get some then!
Oops before I do go...
If you fancy taking part in a "Love" swap Beki is organising one.
Hope you all have a great day.
