I have to confess to a weakness, and that is to have some fresh cut flowers in my home. I always give thanks to all the flowers for their beautiful gifts and thank them as I cut them.
Flowers are so important in our lives.. And they give of themselves unconditionally to bring beauty and fragrance into our lives..
If you stop to think about it.. Flowers are there at every celebration in our lives.. They come at our Birth to welcome us into the world..
They celebrate our Birthday’s and they come to cheer us when we are down.. They often come in the form of a sorry, or a thank you and just to cheer us in our day.
They are there at our Weddings, and each Anniversary.. They come with special wishes when we are feeling low or ill. And they always come to say Farewell as we ourselves leave this world. And they commemorate our anniversaries.. And always bring with them LOVE..
The moment a flower is picked we end its life.. So do not pick them unless you are going to appreciate why they came… They came to uplift you and bring you joy.. They came to share their fragrances and perfumes, their colours and their shapes. They came to share their Love and bring you Joy .
Below are some of the Dahlia’s I have grown specially in our allotments this year just for cut flowers. I hope you enjoy..
Wishing you a Happy New Week..
Next time I will share how to take some cuttings of your Hydrangea Plants..

Happiness is a State of Being
