...or any flowers, for that matter. Although peonies are the flowers of riches & honour (true fact, google it) and also bloggers (because - has American scientist come up with a study for this yet?), they also have a very positive impact on our health and well-being

Have you actually ever stopped and thought about why cut flowers and potted flowers, gardens and greenhouses have always been such a massive part of our lives? 

The other day I read an actual study on how flowers influence our state of mind, emotions and lives in general. I wish I could remember who conducted this eye-opening research - for now let's just called him Professor Jeff. So Jeff found out something along the following lines:

⇢ flowers make us smile
⇢ flowers improve our mood
⇢ flowers make us more emotionally expressive 

How good is that?! Actually scientific proof right there. Now tell me why wouldn't you get yourself a bouquet of pretty flowers every now and then to cheer yourself up on a day when you're a little under the weather, or why wouldn't you give a bunch of flowers to someone you care about to make their day better? Now it's been scientifically proven you can't argue about it, ha! Ta Jeff! 

By the way - this beautiful bouquet of roses & peonies is from Blossoming Gifts' Summer Flowers range. They have the most beautiful bouquets available on their website, and they even sell potted plants available for delivery, how ridiculously clever is that?!
