I have mentioned it before, and I will say it again; one of the things I truly miss since living in the Caribbean (I should improve my garden) is going to wonderful flower shops, filled with sweet scents, ranges of flowers and abundence of colour to buy an absurd amount of flowers to fill my house with. To wake up in the mornings and see, in full bloom, the most delightful and unique flowers that can only make you smile.

So, if you live near one of these splendid boutique flower-shops, brighten up your day and spoil yourself (and your home) with some truly amazing flowers (or better yet, buy them for someone and brighten up their day).
