Hi there, I am back…
Showing you the healing powers of flowers…..
Turns out I was a bit optimistic in my last post. I wrote it Monday morning, and was feeling fine. Then everything turned haywire really fast and by Thursday evening I was sicker than I was before.
So this time I really took my time in getting back on my feet. And I feel I can now say with true confidence that I am almost my old self again.
Took long enough…..
I feel I have somewhere lost the month of May in a vortex of fever, sniffles, and coughs. A whole month spent sleeping, lounging, reading, drinking copious amounts of hot tea, feeling down and miserable and waiting for things to get better.
You bet’ye I am ready for June!
I spent the weekend going through the house and removing every bit of evidence of sickness and replacing it with things that made me smile. No major Spring cleaning here just tidying, decluttering and beautifying. I collected all the stray tissues, neglected teacups and scattered magazines and replaced them with flowers everywhere.
My garden, also terribly neglected and majorly ignored, is producing abundant flowers. I couldn’t enjoy them in May so I made up for that by bringing in lots of flowers.
There isn’t a corner of my home that doesn’t have a flower in them now 🙂
Even my bathroom is sporting a floating rose midst a sea of candles.
Now that has healing powers all by itself. A hot soaking bath, some scented candles and a fluffy new towel. Medicine for body and soul.
I was just in time to catch the final moments of my peonies.
Aren’t they pretty!
Let’s take a closer look.
Oh yeah, so pretty and fragrant. I LOVE peonies!
Yep, I don’t intend to spent too much time in my bedroom this month, did enough of that already. But having some fresh roses on my nightstand sure makes me happy to wake up there in the morning.
Yes I can feel it, summer is almost here and I am ready again to enjoy it to the hilt.
Let the good times roll….
