EMILY’S BITES OF FUN:

The Language of flowers: Blue flowers, for example, have many different meanings.                         In its dark, regal tones, blue can express trustworthiness, confidence, intelligence and unity, which is why it’s frequently the color of police uniforms, the blue “power suit” is an icon of the business world and why winners of competitions receive blue ribbons.  And yet, in its softer hues, blue can uplift the spirit of a sunny sky or soothing  ocean – perhaps explaining why people find themselves choosing blue flowers when they want to send a message of calming beauty, tranquility, and peace. Like the “forget-me-not!

Think about studying flowers, examining the intricate they have, take photographs of blossoms, and stop to smell the roses (literally), and add a beautiful arrangement or framed picture to your creative work space.
