I know many people find investing into flowers pointless, but I find values in buying fresh flowers.
Visual aspect - something for the eye
Flowers standing in a vase on a table make the interior visually warm. The colorful composition just fills me with bliss each morning, and also calms me down in the evening when I come back home. Besides that, they spread a natural, beautiful scent around the room!
Psych aspect - something for the soul
The most obvious fact, is that having fresh flowers in the apartment is connected with positive memories of my family home from when I was still a kid. Since my mom also knows how to appreciate flowers, she made sure to organise a fresh bunch regularly.
Which came to my own surprise, flowers at home help me with growing my mindfulness. Due to the fact, that they only last few days, they remind me how important it is to appreciate single moments in life and taught me how to let go of clinging onto material things.
They are a good reminder how fast time is passing. From one day to another they change their form, starting from being completely closed, through blooming, all the way to dropping their petals. Observing this routine helps me realise how fast life fleets
At the moment there is the season for my favourite flower type - peonies, so I’m using the occasion to enjoy them as much as I can, always purchasing them from a lady at the farmers market.
