Flowers for Me.



These are the flowers that are on my desk at work this week. I buy flowers for myself every Monday...

It makes me happy and provides the day with a little less stress. All I have to do is look at the colors of the week there in front of me and it takes my mind off a frustrating moment. They lift my spirits when I'm down. It's something I recommend for everyone. Buy yourself some flowers...bet it makes you feel better!

I buy myself chocolate, but flowers are a lovely idea.
I do have some mums (inside and outside) that I bought for myself.

I like to keep fresh flowers at home. They do brighten up the room and most put off a lovely scent as well. :)

I never give my wife flowers on special occasions. I bring them home when she least expects it!

I enjoy flowers, especially having some delivered for Valentine's Day - Nothing like the smell of Spring in the winter. Nice pic...

Flowers are great but they should be coming from your man. Tell me who he is and I will send the monkeys to remind him.

I have a collected work of pieces written by Ralph Waldo Emerson and I love them. Just thought I'd share.

That is an awesome idea. I once had someone in my office that would print out beautiful pictures of flowers and leave them on my desk at night. I've saved everyone of them in a photo album and whenver I'm feeling a little down, or just want to see something beautiful all I have to do is open my book.

I love flowers! We grow these amazing roses... sigh.. They'll be in bloom for another nanosecond, but I love them.

That's a sweet idea, what types of flowers do you usually get?
