We don’t realise what an influence flowers have on us and our lives. Flowers in bouquets, perfume, cosmetics and even used in the names of our favourite wine!
So we’ve put together a selection of flower power goodies that will guarantee to delight, make you feel better, do your skin good and generally give you a wonderful spirit of well being.
THE FLOWERS THAT BLOOM…
Nothing beats receiving flowers for whatever occasion or just to send a simple message. Love Delivered is a wonderful way to support a Lincolnshire farm that has been growing flowers for over 40 years.
The flowers are handpicked and packed on the farm the same day so your flowers arrive fresher and last longer. Each bouquet is delivered in bud in pre-arranged bunches by expert florists so you just pop them into your vase.
For more information visit www.lovedelivered.co.uk. Delivery is nationwide.
THE SWEETEST OF FLOWERS A-BLOOMING
A great gift for the bride or just a special treat for yourself this Lily of the Valley Kitty Lip Balm Compact is just so elegant, useful and beautiful.
The feline sits amidst this Spring flower so traditional of wedding bouquets, a folk symbol of love, happiness and luck. All compacts are refillable, available in handmade vegan or beeswax balm in clear, pink or red tints from andreagarland.co.uk.

AND TO COMPLETE THAT FLOWER POWER FEEL HOW ABOUT A GLASS OF ROSE?
Clarendelle Bordeux Rose 2022 is a lovely, glossy, pale rose colour with a berry bouquet featuring raspberries, redcurrants and hints of lychees and pink grapefruit. It has a dense and velvety mouthfeel, a subtle tannic structure. We love its minty freshness and delicate aftertaste. This is really a South of France holiday in a bottle. Visit www.Clarendelle.com
