Fresh Flowers

There is nothing quite like a bouquet of fresh flowers. They're a treat for the senses: beautiful to look at, soft to the touch, full of delightful scents, and in some cases delicious to eat. Having a vase on my desk never fails to make me smile. They remind me to slow down and take a deep breath. To stop and smell the roses.

There are so many varieties and colors available, it's mind boggling to think of them all. My personal favorites include cherry blossoms and peonies, but I truly do love them all. Each inspires a different mood, evokes a different emotion. Some act as a reminder for a special memory and others are simply just pretty to look at. I have been unable to find a local flower shop, but having fresh flowers in the house is always a special treat. What are your favorite flowers to have around?

I can't believe that we're already at the sixth post of the day! It seems like I just woke up a few minutes ago. I'm definitely having a blast so far though.


  1. I love purple irises, especially with yellow daffodils. It is just about impossible not to be happy with those in front of you. :)

  2. Did you take those pictures?

    I agree! I love flowers /o/ Whenever you see them, it's like nothing can go wrong with your mood.

  3. @Pico I love that combination! Definitely one of my favorite springtime combinations.

    @perfectzz I wish I did, but those are some of my favorites from other photographers on flickr.

    That is so true! ❤
