Have you ever looked around your home and noticed how many flowers there are whether it be a print on a throw pillow, a picture hanging on a wall, a bouquet of flowers brought in from the garden or a bouquet of artificial flowers in a jar.
I think that we try to bring the out-of-doors in our homes. Being that I do most of my work in doors I miss that commune with nature, especially in the winter time. Many of you have big lovely yards and gardens to enjoy and work the soil with. In the home that I raised my children in we had a fourth of an acre in lawn and gardens. I loved the times that my children and I spent out their planting, weeding and watering. It brought a lot of togetherness as well as it being a great teaching tool for my children.
In that home I had a lovely rose garden, I planted a rose-bush for important people in my life. A beautiful pink rose bush for my daughter, a handsome yellow for my oldest son, an amazing yellow-orange for the second son, and a soft lavender rose for my youngest son, plus many others. The children loved to look at their bush and admire them. I chose the colors by their personalities. Fun memories. I have five rose bushes and two mini rose bushes in my tiny garden. I can see them from my kitchen window, it is a lovely sight.
I walked around my nest and was not surprised to see beautiful patterns of our out-of-doors. Here is how I bring the outside in. Enjoy!
Have a wonderful weekend!
