Although I live in sunny, temperate Southern California, I still long for spring. I think it’s in all of us; the rhythm of the seasons. The internal clock that reminds us when the three months of the last season are wrapping up starts ticking louder and somewhere between March and April the alarm goes off. It’s time. Time to awaken. Time to emerge from underground. Time to kick off the covers. Time for all those tiny buds to start to unfurl.
It’s spring and I am feeling it big time; the need to take in all the sights and sounds that are swirling around me. Even here in So Cal there are signs that a turning of the seasons is upon us. What better way to honor all the vibrant life around us than to celebrate with fresh flowers. The world is waking up. Everything is blooming. Bring the outdoors in and gather yourself a bouquet of flowers. From the flower stand or from the garden, it makes no matter. Just bring them in.
I like to take it a step further because the only thing better than a bouquet of flowers is the perfect vase to put them in! Make your choice a deliberate one. The shape. The size. The color. It all matters. Find one that makes your heart sing and that bouquet will bring you more joy than you can imagine. For spring’s sake, I did a little online shopping and collected 10 of my latest favorites.
