Summer is here, and the water cooler is buzzing with vacation stories. Relive your favorite destinations with flowers and plants. Harvard research shows having flowers in the home is good for emotional health, and Texas A&M research demonstrates flowers and plants make us work smarter. Here, I’ll share with you how flowers remind two good friends of their travels and creative ways to use flowers for your own getaway.
For spring break, my friend and her husband had a delightful holiday golfing in Phoenix. After returning home, my friend wanted to send her husband a surprise gift at work. She told her florist about the trip, and the florist custom designed the perfect floral arrangement. It had sand at the bottom of a clear vase, a layer of colored golf tees, a layer of colored golf balls, a layer of ‘Green Trick’ dianthus as turf and a ball of white carnations on top. When my friend saw it, she liked it so much she called the florist and sent one to herself.
