No Rain No Flowers – Erlicheer Arrangement

with Asters, Statice and Balm

This week’s box is sunshine through the storm, arriving just in time to brighten your home before the wet and dreary weekend weather is upon us!
Can’t begrudge a few showers though, as after all… no rain, no flowers!

More than just a short, sweet fact of life, this quote also holds massive meaning. Just as blooms cannot blossom without enduring a little downpour, neither, really, can we. We are much like a flower,ourselves, actually, as without rainy days we simply cannot grow. Nor would we be able to truly appreciate the sunshine.

So next time you feel as if when it rains it pours, don’t get too down about it – go outside and splash in a puddle! This is just another opportunity for growth, and soon the wet weather will be behind you and you will blossom in the sun.

Before we go, though… We’ve popped in some jonquils and hellebores this week, and both are displeasing to cats and dogs. Please keep away from your furry friends!
