I’m ready to get out in the garden. This time of year, I have all kinds of ideas and stored up energy to dig, plant, transplant and renew my small plot of land. It’s nice to see the new growth of past endeavors beginning to make an appearance and imagine the upcoming warmer months filled with flowers, beauty and budding enjoyment. But it’s still a bit early to fully garden in the northeast, so it’s probably why flowers have been a strong theme in the studio recently.
Flowers are gifted for all kinds of reasons. Many special occasions (think birthdays, weddings and anniversaries) are celebrated with colorful arrangements. Flowers also mark somber circumstances like funerals or get well encouragement. Life-time accomplishments like promotions or graduations are other flower-worthy moments. The beauty of flowers is undeniable. They make us happy, give us comfort, and speak without words. Go out and plant or buy someone flowers today. Just because.
