First, you should grow some flowers just for picking and putting on the table or wherever you want color in your life. If not, buy some when you see flowers that speak to you. If you have to, have them delivered to yourself. Why do we wait for someone else to give us flowers? There is nothing more beautiful than a gesture of love for yourself. You should be your ONE true love, if nothing else.
There is something about a flower in the home that smells and looks enchanting. I love them so much I infuse water and oils with their petals. Of course, I read about the flower first to make sure I am not going to poison myself. When the flowers die, do not throw the water out, but water another plant or vegetable garden with it. The other plants will love all the nourishment.
I am not certain if it is that I am getting older or just a phase but I am in love with floral patterns these days. I used to think of them as granny-ish. Now I want to paint flowers, get bed sheets with them, Toms shoes, handbags, shirts, or anything with the vibrant little colorful petals. Daisies have always been my favorite because they are so simple.
I am thinking of doing a really large painting that my children will feel bad for throwing out when I am not of this earth. Ha, never. I want them to only hold me in their heart. Release and make room for new and if it comes back it was meant to stay.
I just love filling space with art from my family. The imperfect pieces have become my favorite.
Anyway, BUY YOURSELF FLOWERS YOU BEAUTIFUL SOUL!!!
Be Kind to the Earth!
