Connecting with nature
Did you know that surrounding yourself with flowers and plants benefits your health, both mentally and physically? It reduces stress, benefits your concentration and could finally get you a good sleep rhythm. We can’t stress enough that this is very important, especially now that we are spending more time in and around the house. That is why we would like to encourage everyone to take part in Garden Day this Sunday, May 10th. Simply by spending time in the garden, nurturing flowers and plants or making a flower crown for example.
"Gardeners and florists are the happiest of all the professions... nearly twice as happy as people in more prestigious and better-paid jobs." – Professor Paul Dolan, UK Economist & Behavioural Scientist
DIY flower crown
Making your own flower crown isn’t that hard as long as you have some guidance from a skilled florist. Rachel, from the Tallulah Rose Flower School, will teach you how to make a flower crown, step by step. Watch the video below to get started – you can even get your pet involved too! Are you blessed with a beautiful garden full of flowers? Lucky you, as you have your flowery materials ready. Otherwise, buy everything you need from a local florist.
