My year of flowers

One of my New Year’s resolutions was to always have fresh flowers in our house. I started it off with a bunch of scented stargazer lilies, they where followed by a dreamy vase of purple lisianthus (who had just started looking really sad). Then yesterday evening, dear sweet Alexis surprised me with a gorgeous bunch of brilliant red gladiolus. Aren’t I so lucky? (Top tip – did you know that you can force very tightly closed gladys to bloom by putting loads of ice into thier vase along with the water. Works like a charm!)

    Love this idea! Might have to do the same! Nothing quite like the happiness that comes from a bunch of fresh flowers. They always make me smile. (Pretty pics too!)

      Thanks Kathryn – fresh flowers always brighten up my day too (even if I have to buy them for myself).
