The person who taught me about the importance of having living flowers around is one of my life's mentors, Alexandra Stoddard. Her writing is optimistic, uplifting, and, well, just nice.
I've never met her in person but feel as if she's a dear friend. Many of her books line almost an entire shelf in my home library. No way would they ever be sold as they have added so much goodness to my life. I love Alexandra!
So the sunflowers shown in this post are mixed with yellow chrysanthemums and another kind of flower. The latter is soooooo unique. It's got tiny little orange balls on it, like ultra miniature pumpkins.
The yellows and oranges of this bouquet are perfect for autumn. I like to say the word "autumn" instead of "fall," don't you? "Fall" makes me think of falling down and that's something I try to avoid doing.
If you don't have any living flowers in your home, run, don't walk, to the supermarket and get some. You deserve to have beautiful, living flowers in your house. Even a single bloom in a vase will do just fine, thank you.
DO YOU TRY TO KEEP FLOWERS AT HOME YEAR-ROUND?
