I remember sitting at my desk working away when the office door opened and in walked a delivery man with the biggest most beautiful bunch of flowers – it was from my boyfriend (now husband) to celebrate our first year anniversary (I knew then he was a keeper).
I remember laying in the hospital feeling battered and bruised after giving birth to my 3rd child, in pain and missing my family. Then seeing my 2 lovely girls walk in with a bunch of flowers to make me smile.
I will also never forget a couple of days after suffering a miscarriage coming home to a beautiful bunch of flowers from my sisters and feeling touched by their gesture.
So many special memories and moments that I will never forget. There is nothing quite like receiving a bunch of flowers. To celebrate a birthday or anniversary, to commiserate a loss or just simply to just bring a smile. For me, flowers say it all, without actually saying anything.
It is the colour that they bring, they can brighten up a room, the beautiful scent and maybe, more importantly, the fact that someone out there is thinking of you, someone out there cares. Nothing cheers me up more than a bunch of beautiful flowers in a vase on my table.
Flying Flowers have recently published an infographic about popular gifts throughout the decades and it’s interesting to see flowers were as popular back then as they are now. I have yet to meet anyone who doesn’t appreciate a bunch of flowers! How about you?
