Romantic moments with Gerberas...

I would like to apologise for not posting a bouquet of roses but a bouquet of gerberas. I did the flower arrangement and Melanie took the photo. I think it is a good shot. See, Melanie has artistic skills too. These flowers are for Mel's mother. Her mother loves flowers. She even does better flower arrangements than me. We intend to do one for her mum on mother's day. It is going to be fun!

Flowers placed beside my T.V...

On my left, the flowers are arranged in an Ikebana style. Flowers used are Birds of Paradise and Gerbara. I display it beside my T.V. Birds of Paradise look like swans to me. They bloom from September to May and are native to South Africa. Birds of Paradise require a good amount of sunlight. Usually I would leave my flowers under the morning sun for a while. As well as allowing my cat to tan herself under the sun along my corridor. That is her usual habit.

If you ever notice, you'll tend to see stray cats sleeping under the sun instead. I just got to know that white cat with blue eyes are usually deaf. I remembered I saw one below my block and I only happen to see the cat twice. Of course, the cat was all beautiful to me as it had shimmering blue eyes. Perhaps, the cat might not be the deaf one.

I am going to put up beautiful bouquets of roses soon. Hang on!

Table flowers for my tiny shelter...

Flowers used are carnation, daisy (bellis perimis), pom poms and leaves. It is a simple table setting but yet freshens up my home. Miemi would usually sniff it and turn away. She didn't seem to like my flowers or perhaps, she didn't want to spoil them by nibbling on them. She lovesmy neighbour's plants. She loves to nibble at them and I pretend not to see it.

There was once my aunt gave me a money plant. I thought Miemi would like it. The plant lasted for only two days because... I didn't know why there were worms around it. My neighbour told me about the worms. Otherwise, I wouldn't have known it. Growing or tending to plants was completely new to me at that time. Soon, I am becoming an expert.

I love white roses. Pathetically, I only received 2 hand bouquets of 12 white roses in my life. Many times I bought for someone else :o), during a friend's birthday, Valentine's day or Christmas day or even any other day.

Move with flower...

White Roses: Pure white roses symbolize truth and innocence. They also send other messages like, "I miss you," and "You're heavenly"

Peach Roses: Peach roses signify appreciation, gratitude, modesty, and also can convey sympathy.

Lilac Roses: Lilac roses indicate the sender has fallen in love at first sight with the recipient and is enchanted.

Pale Pink Roses: Pale pink roses imply grace, gentleness, and joy.

Light Pink Roses: Light pink roses express a sense of fun, happiness, and whimsy.

Deep Pink Roses: Deep pink roses say, "Thank you."

Yellow Roses: Yellow roses indicate friendship and freedom ― so don't send them if your intentions are romantic and long-lasting.

Orange Roses: Orange roses communicate enthusiasm, desire, and fascination on the part of the sender.
Which one do you want to send or receive?
