Impact of flowers

If there is one thing that has a great impact on  us it’s definitely flowers. Yes, Flowers. Don’t we all love flowers? The easiest way to cheer up a grey day is by buying a bunch of flowers. You think your house is dull? Why not cheer it up with a beautiful flower arrangement? Flowers inside a house is like bringing the garden inside – which is an old tradition playing a very very important role in home decoration.

Even if almost any mix or combination of flowers is just lovely, may it be wild or from the garden, the impact which this has can be even greater if these flowers are chosen in a careful way based on their colour and shape and style.

It is obvious that growing flowers in the garden, if you do have one, is a cheap way of obtaining flowers for your home. However, fresh flowers are readily available today, they are sold almost everywhere.

Silk flowers, dried flowers are bought easily from department stores and shops, not to forget the florists’.

I personally don’t like wild flowers in the house. Oh, I do love them. They are so, so, so beautiful. They should be enjoyed  when we visit the countryside. This is their place, this is where they look best. Let us just leave them there for the next flower lover to enjoy.

  1. Hello,
    I am living most of the time in France, Poitou-Charentes and the wild flowers here remind me of how England looked when I was a child in the 1950’s The hedgerows are full of different flowers.

    In my blog http://poitoucharentesinphotos.wordpress.com I am doing one post each month called ‘flower of the month’ Last month it was hazel catkins and next month (Feb) it will be primroses.

    I really agree that a major joy of the countyside is the wild flowers…. never pick them.

    • Hi Alan

      I think for most of us wild flowers remind us of our childhood (in the countryside).
      There is this yellow flower which grows from July to November/December in Mauritius. Well, this yellow flower reminds me of the front yard of my home when I was a kid. I remember how beautiful they looked in the morning, with the bees humming, and how good they smelt.

      I don’t know what it is called and I don’t have a picture of it. I will take a picture next time I see them and shall post it here. Maybe someone will tell me what it is called.

      Thanks for your post and keep up the good work via your blog, I love the pics.

  2. Hi, thanks for your reply, quite jelaous of you in Mauritus, here it is freezing and snow everywhere, my blog about Primroses will have to wait a few days yet, no point in writing about a flower which is under six inches of snow at the moment.

    Look forward to your yellow flower photo, I might know it but not so good on tropical flowers
