So far this winter, Mother Nature has spared us from a typical New England winter. Even still, by the end of January it’s hard to avoid wishful thoughts of warmer breezes, green buds on trees, and those first flowers to signal the start of spring. It’s the flowers in particular that I look forward to, not only for the season they symbolize but for the memories and sentiments they evoke. There’s nothing like a bunch of colorful flowers or artful greenery to brighten any area, inside or out.
We can’t hurry spring along, but here are some examples of arrangements and flowers I love.
Odds are you live near a florist or flower shop, which means there’s no reason to wait until spring to enjoy a beautiful bunch of flowers. Why not treat yourself to some cheerful blooms the next time you go out?
