All the Ways that Flowers, Red or Blue or Any Colour, can Brighten Your Day

Brant Florist Yellow Flowers

No matter the weather, the environment, nor the company, the presence of flowers always seem to brighten up the mood. Flowers can make us feel joy, excitement, love, pride, comfort and a lot more. Do you ever wonder how?

Flowers stimulate our senses. Their beautiful colours and sensational scents play with our emotions, and they have the ability to make any scene much more vibrant and lively.

 Brant Florist Orange Flowers

Who can look at bouquets like these, overflowing with bright splashes of red flowers, orange flowers, and yellow flowers and not marvel at their beauty? Even as a simple image they explode right off the page like fireworks, filling the white space with colour, life and energy.

What you don’t get from the pages are the unforgettable scents, with their dazzling hues and refreshing fragrances, flowers captivate our minds and engage our senses.

Try adding some flowers to an office, a school desk, a living room, anywhere. Watch how their colours stand out against the usual browns, greys, whites and blacks of our furniture. Close your eyes and take deep breaths of their aroma. You can’t help but smile! This is a great way to turn the drab into the delightful.

It’s also a great way to reconnect with nature. In a world of bricks and mortar, flowers allow us to bring nature into our lives, wherever we go. They remind us of the beauty all around us. Take sunflowers, for example. Not only do those yellow flowers shine as brilliantly as the sun…Brant Florist Sunflower Field

…but they are a source of joy. This positive energy feeds back to our surroundings and connects us to nature.

In addition to connecting with our own emotions, flowers are a great way for us to connect with others. For every sentiment and a message, there’s a flower that matches its meaning. Thanks, congratulations, apologies, romantic gesture and so on.

This Halloween, Let’s Share Some Fall Flowers!

 

Halloween is a fall festivity that allows us to dream and fantasize. Getting dressed in costumes, whether they are ghosts and goblins or princesses and fairies, we are able to lose ourselves in the fun of being a different character. It also gives us freedom to go crazy in how we decorate our homes, offices and schools.

Marigold (October Flower of the Month)

The vibrant rich oranges, yellows, reds and burgundies of Marigolds are the perfect coloured flower for October.

Marigold

Marigold

The Marigold has many uses including quite a few for medicinal purposes. It assists in the treatment of skin irritations and the sap of the stem has been used to remove warts, corns & calluses.

Because of the bright coloured hue of the flowers it is not surprising that they extract the pigment from the flower to use as a dye. Potted marigolds are edible and are also often used for a garnish on dishes.

The Marigold does have a strong scent that helps keep the insects from swarming around them. When watering your Marigolds they prefer to be watered from the bottom as opposed to watering overhead as the bloom of some varieties might rot.

Another helpful tip to remember is that you will get more flowers to bloom if you do not use fertilizer.

The pumpkin coloured flower is a perfect representation for the Fall and October.
