The Feel Good Idea Of The Day: Smell the Flowers

It is Spring.  Take time to smell the flowers.

I live in the country, and I have a great time taking walks with Woody the Dog.  Each day there is a new blossom.  Most recently, the native Mission Bells have caught my eye.  Once I noticed one flowering, I began to see they are prolific in number.  What a beautiful flower.

If you have family or friends who have difficulty getting outside, flower bouquets are a lovely compromise.  With a bouquet you can bring the beauty of nature inside the home.  Bought from a florist or a store; or hand-crafted--bouquets are a simple way to smell the flowers and enjoy the beauty of Spring.
