There is one thing you can do for a woman of every age that will guarantee a smile, and that is to buy a bunch of flowers. HAW is very good at picking up the odd bunch here or there, especially on his way home on a Friday, he has definitely bought his fair share of flowers in Wimbledon over the years as this is where his train intersection changes. He doesn't spend a fortune and it is not a habit but it is a very special thing that makes me love him lots, it shows he is thinking of me and appreciating what I do!!!
However, nice as it is to have him giving them to me in person, nothing but nothing beats the thrill of a surprise bouquet at random times to show he is thinking of me. He used to regularly send me flowers to my office which always used to make me blush (but secretly I LOVED it) and since I have been at home with the children, he still does this on occasion. His notes are always very thoughtful and I have all them upstairs hidden away. I think the nicest one he ever sent said "you are amazing, I am the happiest man in the world with you by my side" and must have been quite hard for him to have said to the florist (him of the stiff upper lip, boarding school train of thought!)
Consequently, knowing how happy flowers make me, I am always keen to reciprocate to others when I can, and recently when we were staying with the Mother in Law in Scotland I found myself looking for Florists in Kilmarnock as this is where my MIL lives. The great thing about the Internet is that it gives you the flexibility to share the love around!!!
Equally, whenever I want to send flowers to my wonderful mum, I just google flower delivery fulham and I am able to send her a fresh, hand tied bouquet the same day.
My favourite bouquet at the moment are designed exclusively for Interflora by the award winning rose breeder David Austins who has created a charming bouquet with three beautiful roses that has a lovely soft palette of pink. I adore the vintage feel to this bouquet and it really evokes memories of my Grandfather's rose garden.
What are your favourite flowers??
Peace and Love
