Refresh your home with the Flowers of Spring!

Yes, spring has not yet sprung but we are only a week away…

We can’t complain about our Florida winter after what our neighbors to the North have endured.  My girls would not let me mention the word “cold” when I spoke to them this winter…one lives in Philly and the other in New York. They have had a winter they don’t want to see again anytime soon. But never the less even with our mild Florida winter we are ready for spring!

I love flowers in my home all year round but I especially look forward to the colors of nature that spring offers.  I feel like the house is refreshed with even the simplest flowers.  There are so many variations to enjoy – from a simple single rose to a bowl of hydrangeas.

Ok, I know those are not hydrangeas, I think they are hyacinths – I do love flowers but for some species I am usually at a loss for the name…but the bowl by Cultivated Gardens holds them beautifully!

I have a weakness for vases, you can find one on most surfaces in my home, if you don’t have a vase you can put flowers in anything that will hold water.  Ask my husband, nothing is safe from my flower addition.  I have used mugs but a beautiful pitcher is a favorite.

Flowers will freshen up a bathroom and add a romantic feel to the bedside…

Orchids add a touch of elegance!

Occasionally I treat myself to a visit to Bloomingdale Florist to see what they have that can add some drama to my space or just create a warm simple touch. They carry a variety, from exotic tropical species, to cherry blossoms, tulips, roses, daisies and much more.

When I can’t get to the florist I pick up flowers at the grocery store or just cut them out of the yard.  In addition to the flowers I will cut plants from the yard to pop in a vase…Caladiums have beautiful color and shape.
