That’s it we are finally in February and with my operation next week I am trying to get organised.
From odd jobs to accounts it’s all going off here right now. However what I really wanted to do this week was to get into the garden and prepare the flowerbeds for some extra bulbs this year.
After all there is nothing nicer than seeing some brightly coloured offerings swaying in the breeze to remind us that spring and summer are on their way and the dark and dismal days are starting to peter out in favour of some sunshine and warmer spring days.
In light of the fact my usual winter bulbs have failed to sprout and there are only a couple of spring bulbs poking through I think my garden has got itself all confused and so I think after returning home from my op I am going to take matters into my own hands and buy some flowers for the table next to my recuperation chair.
It used to be the case that hospitals allowed flowers on the wards but now with so many rules and fewer staff than ever before I won’t be seeing anything cheerful on the ward where I will be for a week, just the clinical whiteness of the sterile ward.
I need to see their cheerful colours and smell their wonderful scent and so I am looking to have my own delivered buy a company that can deliver all different types of flowers so I can really go to town while counting down the weeks after surgery until I am fit enough to back in the garden to tend to my flower beds.
Although if truth be told it would be nice to have some delivered as there really is nothing nicer than someone sending you some.
Do flowers make you feel good?
