Flowers – one of life’s small pleasures
Everyone loves to get flowers – they’re a great gift that you can put on display in your house, reminding you for a week or so of the person who gave them to you. More than that, they can be beautiful things in themselves, even if you buy them for yourself. Today you can order flowers in person, by phone or over the Internet. Even when you think it’s too late to order some flowers for them to get to someone in time, the chances are that you can still find somewhere that will do it for you, if you’re willing to pay a premium – there are shops out there that can deliver flowers faster than pizzas. Perhaps the nicest way to get flowers, however, is not to buy them at all – instead, head down to your local garden centre, get a selection of seeds, plant them and water them. If you choose the right kind of flowers, you can grow your own flowers within literally a week of first planting them, and it’s a very satisfying feeling to know that you’ve grown your own flowers for yourself.
If you then give them to someone else as a gift, it will make it far more special. Whatever kind of flowers you get, make sure to put some thought into it. It is all too common, especially for men, to just walk into a shop and grab the first thing that catches your eye. It is much better if you do your research, know which flowers are in season and which kinds of flowers go together well in an arrangement, and especially find out what people’s favourite flowers are before you get them flowers as a present – otherwise you might end up getting them a bunch of flowers that they don’t even like! Overall, flowers are simple things that nevertheless are capable of bringing so much joy to people. They are one of life’s simple pleasures, not even that expensive.
Why not buy some flowers for the special person in your life today? I guarantee they’ll be pleasantly surprised.
