A flower blossoms for its own joy.

“If we'd put them in a vase in the living room, they would have been everyone's flowers. I wanted them to be my flowers.” ― The Fault in Our Stars

I've never been one for flowers. I've only been bought them once in my life - on my birthday - and it was because I asked for them. Secretly, I've always wanted someone to buy me some without me having to tell them but they never have.

Yesterday afternoon I went to the shops to buy stuff for dinner and saw a lot of flowers at the entrance. At first I wanted to get the lilies as they are my favourite flower but after waking around the shops and then coming back to the flowers at the end I decided that I wanted the gerberas.

You know what? Orange is my least favourite colour - I've never liked it and gerberas have never been my favourite flower, but I saw them and thought "those are the ones". They were so bright and happy and I feel like that's what I need at the moment to cheer me up.

Hope you enjoy the pictures. ♥



  1. That's the effect flora can have on us. I've never one to be picky with flowers, after all, they are nature's gift. Glad it cheered you up! :))

    1. It was exactly what I needed :) I think I've been converted to a flower lover - I'm definitely going to buy flowers more often.

  2. Hehe, gerberas are one of my favourites because when I was a kid, my family called them the "Dinah flower" :) But I really do like to have flowers around the house. Unless they're terrible smelly, in which case they can GTFO, hahaha. :)
