I Love Fresh Flowers

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 340 People

    This Is My Personal Splurge!

    I'd rather have fresh flowers than any other personal treat!  I teach at an urban school, and try and keep fresh flowers in my classroom.  So many of my students don't have beauty in their life.  Something as simple as flowers just makes them feel special.

    Daisy Chains

    I loved making daisy chains as a child. Still love to draw flowers, take pictures of them, smell them, admire them from near or afar. They share their beauty and fragrance with us.

    Spent the Summer In Flower City

    This summer I studied abroad in Kunming, China for a month - a true flower capital, as fresh flowers are flown from there all over the world. Best of all - there was a flower stand down the street from my dorm, and a bunch of beautiful lilies or mini roses was less than a dollar...

    If I Had A Choice...

    I would have fresh flowers placed all around my apartment every two or three days. They're so beautiful and I think they make any place home-y.

    Bright Colorful Ones

    I think flowers are just beautiful. I prefer them still on the plant in a pot in my house but will thank the person who brings fresh flowers to my house! They just brighten up any room and if I'm lucky they smell great and don't bother my allergies!
