Hello and welcome - this is my first blog!
I have a huge love of flowers, they bring so much joy and happiness at the special times and occasions during our lives. But I want to share with you my thoughts on how they can make a difference to our daily hum-drum lives.
We are living in a time where we are all searching for that re-connection with nature. We are designing our homes to bring light and the landscape into our lives; we dream of spending our free time escaping to places off the beaten track.
However, I would highly recommend you to take up one simple pleasure in life; Go outside with your scissors or secateurs and snip a few flowers and budding branches from your garden, or ask your friendly neighbour Peter if he wouldn't mind if you took a few!
You can do this even in the heart of Winter and still find you will have in your hands a collection of beautiful plants to bring into your home or share with your friends. You will be surprised how much joy this brings!
Right now, Spring beckons here in England, a few budding blossoms, clusters of daffodils, hellebores and do not forget the greenery growing unassumingly in your gardens, waiting to be put on to centre stage! I would love to hear from you and your experiences.
