AGF Mood Monday - Blossoming

"Flowers don't worry about how they're going to bloom. They just open up and turn toward the light and that makes them beautiful" - Jim Carrey

Does anyone here not like flowers? And I'm not talking about floral fabrics (which are loved by many), I'm referring to an actual, natural flower. I have yet to meet a person who is not moved in some way by looking at one.

Flowers have the power to evoke such emotions within us that it's not a surprise we gift them to each other in the most special occasions. Now that fall is upon us and winter quickens to arrive, the sight of blossoms is yet more thrilling. Though there are many types of flowers that prefer to bloom during the lower temperature, some will not be seen until next spring. So today I'd love for us to start the week in a floral mood, let's share about our favourite(s) flower(s).

I love the fact that many women are named after flowers. Both of my grandmothers were named Rosa, and because of that I love roses, white and red. My favourite though, are hydrangeas. I find them extremely beautiful like fluffy clouds floating on a green sky. As far as smell, the scent of hyacinths is both joy and calm. One day I'd love to have a garden with all different kinds of red flowers and white flowers, so if you know any names please teach me :)

Here in South Florida, most flowers also shy away during fall and "winter," but in some areas vibrant bugambilia can be found. It is their particular colour during this time which inspired the photos below [also: the first two people to tell me who is the designer of this print might* get some flowers (printed on fabric) this winter]:

To a blossoming week,
