Chrysanthemums

 

This painting is posted in homour of my mum. During a quiet moment at a family funeral this week, I remembered all the things I love about her and the importance of kin. I miss her often.

Chrysanthemums :: Cheerfulness, optimism, rest, truth, long life, joy.

Horace G. Hewes, Chrysanthemums  1880, oil on wood panel

They’re the November birth flower, the 13th wedding anniversary flower.  A symbol of the sun, the Japanese consider the orderly unfolding of the chrysanthemum’s petals to represent perfection, and Confucius once suggested they be used as an object of meditation.  It’s said that a single petal of this celebrated flower placed at the bottom of Buy Amoxil a wine glass will encourage a long and Amoxil online usa healthy life.

Oui la la, Odorantes

 

Bird + Fleur + Object = Noel beauty

Sofia stopped at Odorantes,

a tiny flower shop that specializes in bouquets that are organized by scent rather than by color.

Bouquets in Paris, unlike floral arrangements in America, usually consist of one flower or one hue.

“I found this shop by wandering through the neighborhood,” she said, while waiting outside for the flowers to be arranged. “When I shop, it’s not so much about buying. Whether you get something or not, when you go in a store, you see what Paris is like.”

Peonies party

 

A vase of pink peonies greeted guests

~ the mysterious depth of its flower with petals like angel feathers,

and intoxicating fragrance. One of my favourite flowers.

The Peony flower’s beauty is so rapturous, yet fleeting, there’s no wonder the ancient Greeks spun the Buy Celebrex peony flower into legend.

It’s said there is a nymph named

Paeon

so beautiful she was courted by many gods.

Until a jealous god plotted to Buy Avodart destroy her.

To save her, Zeus transformed her into a flower with a thousand petals.

Odorantes

 

Odorantes, is an exquisite florist on the rue Madame, Paris

run by Emmanuel Sammartino and Christophe Hervé

that is so chic and in demand it survives on word of mouth alone.

As the name suggests, the flowers here aren’t just pretty — they smell nice.

Like many Parisian florists, Odorantes wraps up stems in chic black paper,

and their Black Baccara rose is the ultimate in Parisian floral chic.

I am so enchanted with Odorantes that I will do another post about it soon.
