Today is November 12, and on the cool, beautiful days of Autumn, there are lots of beautiful flowers still in season. Nights are longer, and Holidays are in the air, so oranges, reds, and yellows seem to be most popular. What we have been sending most are Alstroemeria, Asiatic Lily, Calla Lily, Carnation, Chrysanthemum, and a few Dahlias. Gerbera Daisy, Hydrangea, and Iris, and Rose and Sunflower, (especially in vibrant orange), are a favorite. Sometimes its fun to spray paint flowers, or create an original beauty, if they aren’t available for purchase. If spraying blooms is the choice, remember to purchase from a craft store, where they sell fresh flower paint, and lightly mist the tender petals in a well ventilated area.
That’s all for now, but in the words of Hans Christian Anderson, who wrote the best fairy tales, “Just living is not enough, one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower”.
PS. No matter how crazy life gets, Make time for your family and friends, as much as you can, especially around the holidays.
