A beautiful flower arrangement can upgrade the most drab of interiors and hide a multitude of sins.
As a student, I lived in the most horrid little bedsit imaginable. That was before the days of landlord certificates and safety checks. To give you an idea of the state of the place, we had rather large mice (affectionately named Mickey and Ian, in honour of our dodgy managing agents) and the window fell off in my hands at one point… when my poor mother visited, she almost fainted on the spot and we practically had to resuscitate her. Anyway, even then, I used to buy a weekly fresh flower bouquet from a nearby stall to cheer the place up.
These days, my ultimate dream is to have my own cutting garden to create little bouquets to decorate our home. A tall arrangement on the mantelpiece, or perhaps a couple mini posies by the bedside tables…Meanwhile I have to settle with store bought items and use them creatively.
Would love to hear from you dear blog readers. Do you buy flowers for your home on a regular basis? Do you wait for special occasions or perhaps “guests” to justify the cost. Or are you comfortable to enjoy them by yourself.
