Let's talk flowers


I love flowers.
If I could pick one daily frivolity, it would be to have a vase in each room, full of flowers.
I believe flowers bring a room to life.
One would think that with our fine weather and fertile soil, flowers would be very affordable in Greece. They are not. If one lives in the suburbs, though, or in the countryside, where greenery is freely available, I would go for evergreens. Potted herbs are fine, too, and they come in handy!
 And look how they can be impressively transformed!  
The photos above perfectly illustrate my point.
They come from the very stylish and original florists, Fleria, in Athens, and the pottery is inspired by traditional embroidery exhibited at  the Benaki Museum, again in Athens.
Do you love having flowers around the house?
Which are your favorites?

I'm a little spoiled here. My husband brings me flowers every week. I remember my cousins in Greece telling me how expensive they are there.
