How often do you get flowers? I love receiving bouquets of flowers, the sight of a bunch of blooms in my living room always puts a smile on my face. They add a lovely scent into the air making the house smell of summer. You notice the scent when you walk in the door, it adds a feeling of freshness to the home. I love being surprised with flowers, they always make me feel special. There is something soothing about unwrapping them, taking out a lovely vase and arranging them for display. Recently I had a difficult week. My poor dog was in real pain, squealing in agony whenever he tried to get up. It was torture to watch, you know they are hurt but they can’t tell you where. To see a dog that loves running around and enjoys long walks in so much pain is distressing. We had to take him to the vet on the Sunday but two days later he was no better. When he had x-rays they showed that one of the discs in his spine was misshaped and pressing on his spine. Luckily with lots of rest and relaxation and painkillers he now seems fine. I was really worried about him and when I received a lovely flower delivery from Blossoming Gifts it really cheered me up.
Blossoming Gifts are a company that provide online flowers. The flowers arrive in a box and are sent by post. The flowers are guaranteed to stay fresh for seven days. As well as flowers Blossoming Gifts also do a range of hampers, wines and gifts. The bouquet I recieved was from their range of summer flowers. Called Summer Delight it is a lovely mix of roses and carnations. When I opened the box containing the flowers the perfume was delightful and made me think of sitting in the garden on a summer day. I happily set about arranging them in a vase.
Blossoming Gifts also do a range of cheap flowers which are all under £20 so you can surprise the special person in your life even if you have a limited budget. Did you know you can also cook with flowers? I have recently been experimenting cooking with edible flowers and produced the perfect summer recipe for jasmine ice cream with cornflower butterscotch sauce and orange and marigold shortbread. A combination that is perfect for a summer dessert.
