Flower Craving

Wednesday, December 21, 2011

Oh my, the air outside is crispy cold and we even got our first snow this morning. (Yippie!). But after looking at Alice's photographs, I feel like popping down to the florist for a bunch of ranunculus to warm up the flat with some rich colour. Aren't they beautiful? Dears, what flowers do you love this time of the year? xo

P.S: I heard that they get better as they age, and last up to two weeks :)
P.P.S: Also, Japanese flowers garden and this Parisian flower market.

How pretty! I love the aubergine hue. Poppy reds are purty, too! If you do go grab some you should take a pic of your Ranauculi!

HiLLjO, deal! And Mal, me too. The black background makes the flowers look even more beautiful, doesn't it?

It's no secret I love flowers. As you, and anybody else who reads my blog, knows, I have "monday flowers". And when I lived in Vancouver, I bought myself fresh flowers every Saturday (now that I live in Australia, I'm going to have to find a local florist and start doing the same thing). I like any kind of flowers, any time of year. xo

In the language of flowers, a bouquet of ranunculus says, “I am dazzled by your charms.”

You must read The Language of flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh....it is a really good read as well as learning the meanings behind flowers!

girlfromthehills, the language of flowers sounds pretty awesome. Thank you for the rocommendation. Totally going to check that book out.
