ONE PRETTY LITTLE SILK FLOWER
Somewhere, Sometime, Someone said seeing flowers stimulate happy feelings. I found that it seems to work for me.
It was winter when I heard that, many years ago. I had an old little silk flower in a pot in the garage. It had evaded several trips to the dump. I brought it in and set it on my stove, bright, solitary, in front of a window. As I glance out the window I have the benefit of falling back to that persistent, ever in bloom flower. I LOVE IT!! So I got a tiny potted silk at $ store and set it beside our shared computer screen at work. The other girls all appreciated and liked having a little life (like) as we signed in and out of the job.
And so I began to populate my home and surroundings with the beauty of flowers and plants. I love my flowers and the silk work fine without maintenance (except a shower occasionally).
With ‘dull-drums’ and ‘depression’ being a symptom of ‘cabin fever’, why not see how one pretty little silk flower might work for you?
Something to consider as we lay our flower beds to nap for the winter and in the interim until we watch for the crocus to peek through the melting snows in the early spring.
