Why I Love Flowers

I love bright colours and I love nice scents (no honestly since the nasal irrigation started taking oh Lordy I can smell things!) so I guess flowers are the obvious combination of that. They make me incredibly happy to receive, they’re like a physically incarnate smile.

They’ve featured a couple of times on my #fivetinylittlejoys over on Instagram. I think it’s also the frivolity of their nature as a gift, they’re momentary, fleeting, a gift given purely for love. To remind the recipient that the giver is thinking of them.

They make me happy. Calla Lilies because they make me think of Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, carnations because they used to be the only flowers that didn’t make me sneeze and roses being my favourite but honestly any brightly coloured bouquets will make me smile.
