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.
Before entering your home
welcome your friends and family with flowers potted at the front door!
I hope you brighten your day today with a flower or two!
