Gardeners have known it all along: Flowers are natural mood-lifters. Now scientists are praising the power of petals. A Harvard University study found that placing small bouquets of flowers around your home strengthens feelings of compassion and decreases anxiety and worry. Snip fragrant cottage rose blossoms and float them in water in an antique muffin tin for an instant pick-me-up. by angelita

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen." *Elisabeth Kubler-Ross ~ Maya Angelou by deena

Alyssum is an old-fashioned favorite. The dainty, spreading plants are covered with clusters of small, sweetly fragrant flowers. Bees love the lavender and white blossoms. Sow Lobularia flower seed directly outdoors as edging, between stepping stones, and in rock gardens, containers, and hanging baskets. Trim to keep fresh blossoms, and to start new shoots, shake flower seed from older plants directly on the soil. by Carolyn Kirby McCormick

Candles are a staple in our lives for a reason — they're inexpensive, easy to use and get the job done. Elevate them to the next level by placing them in a glass vessel filled with water and let them float all night. Tall and skinny, short and plump or a simple glass bowl will do the trick! Along with the water, add some cranberries, flowers or greenery to the vessel for an added pop of color. by consuelo

Lavender - An old favourite. Lavenders are widely grown in gardens world-wide, they are occasionally found growing wild as they are easily fertilised and self perpetuating. The fragrant, pale purple flowers and flower buds will be an attractant to bees all day long during the summer months. The flowers can be dried and used in potpourris as well as other forms of aromatherapy. by amchism

Bundles of bouquets bloom across this bedding in a nod to English cottage style's love of floral prints. Just one of many ways to bring the glory of a country garden inside, these blossoms last much longer than cut flowers! Popular, too, are planked walls and painted pieces. These heavily distressed blue walls check both boxes./ by etta
