Spring

Living in AWE………

To really know me is to know that I love flowers. Watching a flower grow is like watching my kids unwrap a present. To give a present is true beauty. And to give a gift of flowers is a blissful feeling. Beauty is all around us and you don’t have to go far to find it. I am truly living in awe when I get to deliver bundles of beautiful blooms. Nothing can be more blissful than giving a gift of nature that brings a smile on someone else’s face. I love the poem by Mary Oliver called Peonies. She describes the flowers as “beauty the brave, the exemplary.” She then asks, “Do you love this world?” I do.
“Do you cherish your humble and silky life?” I do. I get to fill my arms with the white and pink flowers and that my dear flower enthusiasts is living in AWE.

Bring it on Spring!.....

I was walking through the flower market and picking out just the right flowers for our spring line up! I was inundated by all the amazing tulip picks from France and Holland. Then I meandered over to Italy and was bedazzled by the vibrant purple and white colors of the robust Anemones.

At that moment all I could think of was the quote by Thich Nhat Hanh, “Smile, breathe and go slowly”.
I couldn’t stop smiling, as I was breathing in all the beautiful aromas of spring. As I was passing slowly through Ecuador, gazing at the Pink Floyd, Tibet and Free Spirit roses, I came across even more beauty with the Garden Spray roses and Ranunculus.
I felt like I traveled around the world in just one afternoon. Ironically, it was the same feeling my 3 kids had when they came across the flowers in the foyer, kitchen, and bedroom. What a wonderful feeling it is to share the world! Bring it on!
