Fresh Flowers in Vase - A soothing spot in the home. (Year 2010 collection)

Flowers are nature's beautiful creation. Glimpse of flowers mesmerizes every human being.  I strongly believe that flowers enhance peace,  love and positive energy in the home and there by stimulate emotional and physical healing. I love to secure a little spot in the home with fresh flower vase. Here in USA we have beautiful choice of fresh flowers available in grocery shops...just spending four to eight dollars one can create nice flower arrangement..adding some stems, leaves  and bushes found around home adds beauty to flower arrangement. Last year I started to post pictures of these arrangements at the right corner of the blog. I love this ritual. In this post I am collecting all last years captured flower arrangements...Enjoy!!

Summer time creation - flowers,leaves from patio garden (July)

Sm, Thanks for appreciation and wishes.

@Bikram, Nice to see you here..don't wait.. go ahead and start arranging them in vase. It just need wish and no formal knowledge..slowly and spontaneously you will start creating nice arrangements. Thanks for your visit and comments.

@Mak, Nice to see you again..thanks for appreciation..pick very tiny vase and just add one or two flowers and place it at the corner of your will love it.

Jack, Thanks...Nice to see you back.

@Dolly, I am so glad that you enjoyed seeing those arrangements.

You buy some floral foam block from local craft store...cut it as per size of vase and secure those flowers..this helps when you choose flat vase..Also buy some moss, it will help to mask visible foam and will be useful in other plant pots too...In India I used to place pin holder to secure flowers but it is not easily found foam works better and best.
