Flower Therapy: Part One

Yesterday, after my gloomy post, I immersed myself in flower therapy. I got some beautiful white lilies, which look stunning against my new teal paint, if I do say so myself. Later I went to the local nursery and loaded up on Gerbera Daisies, Mexican Sage, Plumbago, Purple Moon, and Blue Daze. Now I get to do gardening therapy. It turns out a load of blue flowers is a fine way to beat the blues.

Here’s a shot of my Easter Lilies with my new teal paint (Benjamin Moore’s Pacific Ocean Blue) as a backdrop.










Here’s a second view with kitty planning her attack.

    Love, love that color paint.. Funny, I went Friday to get some basil, lavender, green pepper and tomato plants to grow.. Something about plants & flowers is very nurturing & healing..
    Your flowers are gorgeous..Have a wonderful day and new week!!


    • I love it, too! I’m so glad to be rid of the red. The teal feels so good. I love the Mexican sage. It smells fantastic. I hope it grows, but I fear they won’t get enough sun. If not, you’ve given me an idea. I’ll try lavender!

      Just fyi, I’m a lot happier than my blog lets on. It’s an outlet for the things that weigh me down, but then I’m free of them once I write it out. Although it may take a few repetitions. 🙂


  2. It’s the perfect paint color – and the flowers do look stunning. Blue Daze, and Plumbago are some of my favorite flowers – BLUE! Like the sky has stopped to visit in your garden. They will look wonderful with your other choices.
