The wild flowers in the field this morning were vibrant, the yellow trefoil and purple alfalfa and white new england asters…and then when harvesting for bouquets the flowers were equally as beautiful. I think Rachel, Ben’s girlfriend has me seeing the flowers a little differently this week.
She was here to celebrate Ben’s birthday…
He went to work and she was left to flower with me. At first I thought she was faking it but she wasn’t…she excitedly embraced everything flowers. From washing buckets, to the prospect of harvesting and the opportunity to "play with flowers." She was so genuinely interested in their beauty, as well as the different varieties, colours and textures and creatively pulling them together into beautiful bouquets.
It got me thinking about the transformative power of flowers, simply put, the pure joy that blooms can bring to our lives. Just being around flowers makes everything better.
Flowers have an innate ability to touch our souls and uplift our spirits. Their vibrant colours, delicate petals, and enchanting scents create a sense of wonder and bring joy to our lives.
The simple act of observing flowers is a reminder that amidst the busyness of life, we should take a moment to notice and I mean really notice the beauty that blooms all around us.
It’s important to note…You don’t need special blooms…they aren't necessary for creating memorable floral experiences. Of course we’d love for you to enjoy our flowers but you can find nature's abundant offerings, even in the most ordinary of places. It doesn’t matter if it’s a fancy bloom from a flower shop or a wildflower, each can have a profound effect on our well-being and ignite our creativity.
Flowers allow us to connect with nature on a more intimate level. Each stem plucked becomes a precious treasure, reminding us of nature's generosity. They all hold stories of resilience and adaptability.
It doesn’t matter if it’s the blooms from our fields or your backyard, or the wildflowers that grace your cottage road, each stem tells a story, and as we gather them with care and reverence, we weave those stories into our own lives, connecting us to the natural world in a meaningful way.
All this to say - Bring some flowers into your home this week, you’ll be glad you did. Thanks to Rachel, I made the point of being sure to have lots of flowers in the house this week.
Next week we’ll give you all the tips and tricks for getting the most out of your flowers once you bring them home.
