Flower Power

Sunday, January 15, 2017

A huge guilty pleasure for me is a big, beautiful bouquet of flowers. I've always loved flowers, and grew up gardening alongside my mom. I loved to work in the yard with her and learn the names of each unique little bloom. Chrysanthemums, gaillardias, peonies - I could name them all. I remember as a little girl sitting for hours in the winter with my great-grandmother Della's Gurney's flower and seed catalogs daydreaming of summer's warmth and the grand gardens I could create.

I always have a bouquet of flowers in our home. They make me happy, and bring a little life and color to our house - especially this time of year. Thankfully, I'm lucky enough to live close to a Dillon's where you can buy beautiful flowers for really cheap - like $5 for a bouquet! I love picking up a bunch of flowers when I'm shopping for groceries. It's a lot of fun to see what colors and types of plants you can find and turn into a flower shop worthy bouquet.

I wanted something soft, yet still wintry this weekend. I'm kind of tired of the bold red and burgundy shades of Christmas but wanted something that still looked like January. I was excited to find these soft blush colored spider mums and peaches and cream hypericum berries. They were also selling bunches of these bright green leaves which I thought would give the arrangement a little depth. The little berries give it some wintry texture.

As I look out my window to trees coated in ice, it's nice to look at these bright blooms on my table. If you need a little pick-me-up on this cold, icy Sunday, grab yourself some flowers. I promise they'll do the trick.

  1. Nice writing style. Looking forward to reading more from you.,I finally decided to write a comment on your blog. I just wanted to say good job. I really enjoy reading your posts.

  2. These delicate, puffy, minimal dynamic flowers are a profound violet tone. African violets are not difficult to develop for the starting nursery worker, yet offer a wide scope of cultivars to fulfill the genuine cultivator. flower bear
