Being one of those people who suffer from allergies in spring & summer, I'm not able to spend as much time outside as I want to. So, taking nature into my home is the solution. Asking my mum what sort of flowers would be safe for me to have with my allergies (she always knows these things) I picked up carnations from the supermarket. They look like delicate little paper silver tissue flowers when they bloom and I love that.
I used to be all about treating myself to fresh cut flowers on Friday. But, I've come to realise that ending your week with flowers and waking up to them on Monday morning makes all the difference to that Monday morning mood of mine.
