Flowers and Me
June 27, 2019
I’ve been pretty open about my craving for coffee ice cream. I feel that fresh flowers are also a necessity in our home. They cheer me up. I was extra happy this week when dinner guests brought us a beautiful bouquet.
A recent report supports what I already knew. A ten-month behavioral study conducted by Rutgers University explored the link between flowers and life satisfaction. It found that flowers are a natural moderator of moods and have strong positive effects on people’s emotional health.
Most weeks I buy white flowers. What I didn’t know until now is that white symbolizes openness. White blossoms are most often associated with purity, honesty and perfection.
Need I say more?
Odd, but I have never liked fresh flowers. They just seem like a waste to me. But...give me a live plant that I can put out in the yard any time!
