Flowers don’t last — and that’s a good thing
As a florist I often muse over conversations I’ve had with customers, or remarks I’ve heard about flowers that have made me think.
I hear it often: “Don’t buy flowers because flowers don’t last.”
Yes, fresh natural flowers have a short life, from days to perhaps a week, two if you’re lucky. We’re blessed in Australia that our natives will often last for a few weeks.
The fact that flowers don’t last contributes to their beauty.
It adds to their effervescence.
It gives a special glow of pleasure to the viewer each time they are looked at and admired.
These moments in time are to be treasured.
It’s not a reason for sadness that they will die.
It’s a reason for gladness that they lived.
And a reason for gratitude that Nature gave them to us, to celebrate the special moments in our lives.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, hope you have a fab day!
