Dinner Parties
How Old We Are

Flowers and Me

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!
