Are we all getting bored of winter yet? One of the things I don’t like about this season is the dark; it makes blogging original content so much more difficult as there is such a short window of light during which I can take half way decent photographs (I find this difficult enough without having so little natural light). Saying that, I took all of the photos below on a really dark day so they have been photo-shopped within an inch of their lives!
Another thing I find difficult about winter is the lack of colour outside. I miss beautiful spring blooms, wild flowers and blossoming trees. I also miss some of my favourite flowers at the florist and can find it really difficult to find what I like without having to spend a small fortune. I can’t just grab a hydrangea stem from the balcony or a handful of wild flowers from the roof terrace so buying cut flowers every week can be pretty pricey.
This winter I have found a great solution to this problem, which is a lovely selection of dried flowers from The Great British Florist. I used to have this idea that dried flowers were ‘grannyish’ and were all very earthy, dull tones. However, I have bought beautiful bright bunches of dried flowers that have really brightened up my home and have cost me nothing much at all compared to weekly fresh flowers.
If you, too, need an inexpensive boost of colour to your home during these dark days then check out the selection at The Great British Florist.
