Leave it to Valentine’s Day to get most of America in a frenzy to buy their loved ones tons and tons of chocolates, candy and flowers. Although I’d like to believe that I’d never be one to really news flowers on this widely celebrated holiday, I feel as though the occasion definitely renews my love affair with fresh spring flowers each year. That I get from Clear Lake florist. Peonies and tulips are typically my favorite, and I’m always amazed at what I can come up with for under $20 at my local Whole Foods. I think that all I need are a few great blooms, some jute string and a blue mason jar for a dose of instant floral fabulousness.
Even though I’m a frequent buyer of beautiful blooms that I can turn into bouquets, there’s really nothing like being able to go outside and grab some photography-worthy flowers and rearranging them yourself to display around the home. While hydrangeas seem to be the most commonly sighted kind of flowers that I see around my area, peonies and tulips would have to be named my top favorite. Although these bulb-type flowers are harder to grow and can sometimes be shorter lived than other various types of floral species, I definitely find them to be more beautiful and eye-catching than all the rest.
This year, I absolutely plan on embracing my inner florist (we all have one of those inside, right?) and learn how to create more magazine-worthy floral arrangements to keep around the house, office, and to give as gifts. Just remember: April showers bring May flowers and I absolutely can’t wait to get this winter and rainy season over with so that I will be able to resume my love affair with flowers right where it left off this time last year!
