There are so many beautiful flowers in the garden now that they just make me happy. If you have an abundance of flowers by all means bring some in the house to enjoy too but just looking out and seeing them or walking in the garden will bring sunshine to your day.
Here are some of my favorite flowers:
1. If you are lucky enough to live in in climate like I do you will see a lot of these fuschia bouganvillas blooming all through the summer and fall. They come in other colors but these are my very favorite. They make a wonderful shock of color on walls and by doorways.
2. Orchids always look elegant and there are so many species and colors available. If you buy them for inside the house and live in a mild climate you can plant them outside and they will bloom again next year! I’m so lucky to live in California!
5. Lilacs – purple, pink or white – love the smell!
10. Poppies are so colorful and the orange California poppies (California State flower) dot the highways and grow wild. Orange adds such a spark of life to other colors, especially green.
