May Day holidays just went past and the boys are deep into study mode as they are in the midst of their Mid Year exams. They have completed their oral and composition papers and will be doing their Paper 2 soon.
To help ease up the study stress I have been buying fresh flowers for the house to brighten up the place.
light purple Foxgloves
The flowers that I buy can’t be compared to the blooms that I saw at the flower dome a few weeks ago.
Dark Pink blooms
There were the most unusual flowers in the dome which I do not normally see in florists .they certainly make good centerpieces and conversation starters.
a mixture of different color flowers
Sometime if the objective is not to make the centerpiece too outstanding, these types of flowers would make a good selection.
light blue flowers
These while blue flowers too would make the home more cozy with it’s addition.
Flowers are great visual stimulus to perk up one’s mood instilling positive vibes within you.
I’ll be making another trip down to the Flower Dome soon to view their latest exhibition on tulips.
A few weeks ago when I was at the Flower Dome I spotted these other blooms. It was really interesting to see different shades of purple within one flower. The veins of the flower can be clearly seen in the picture above as it is in a deeper shade of purple as compared to the petals.
light purple bloom
Looking at this light purple bloom made me thinking about a pom pom. There are multiple petals that come together like a ball in this flower giving it a really unique 3-D appearance.
Small pink cluster blossoms
This was one of the cherry blossom that I spotted among the displays. It looks similar to a chrysanthemum flower with its multiple petals all up in a ball.
A peach rose
Roses are one of my favourite flowers to capture. I love the ruffles in their petals and that each petal adds to the volume of the flower.
The classic red rose with a bud that was slowly opening. Red roses are the most commonly found roses in a florist as it is widely used to represent love. I personally prefer pink, blue or even orange roses as I find them more unique and attractive to the eye.
Light pink roses
This particular rose has a circular pattern and looks like a funnel. I can see how lovely these flowers will look in a vase on the coffee table.
