What do flowers mean to you?

It is always lovely to receive a bunch of flowers, occasionally I treat myself to some, but it is much nicer to receive them from someone else – whether to say “thanks”, “I love you”, “Get well soon” or maybe even sorry!!!

In times gone by of course, it was much more complicated as each bloom meant something…..

The obvious and simple one of course is rose ….. but is it?

I thought a red rose meant love, but according to various sources from the wonderful interweb

- while a red rose means passionate love, respect, courage
- a dark red rose means mourning,
- a pink rose means friendship and gratitude
- and a yellow rose can mean jealousy or joy or  infidelity or welcome back!!!

Talk about confusing!

These days of course it is much easier, we just order the flowers and send a message attached!

This featured post was brought to you by the lovely  people at www.flowers.org.uk , but all opinions expressed are my own!

Why not order flowers from Interflora today

Enjoying Life

For the rest of our family the North Atlantic sea off the north coast of Northern Ireland is just TOO cold …. but not for our 7 year old.

He certainly believes in “Enjoying Life”!

    Will be looking forward to the new year pics of your son in one of those “Polor bear” swims you see on the news around the world. ;)
