{floral friday}

{floral friday #44}

One of my favorite things about having a {floral friday} on this blog each week is, I get to have these beautiful flowers in my home for a while. Especially in the winter time it brings my mood up to have a dash of color in the house. :)

This week's flower I want to share with you is the freesia.

A few facts about freesia:

  • Freesia are named after the German physician Dr Friedrich Heinrich Theodor Freese.
  • In the language of flowers, freesia are said to symbolize innocence and friendship.
  • Freesia is the 7th wedding anniversary flower.
  • The flowers come in a great variety of colors. White, yellow, orange, pink, red, lavender, purple and bicolors.
  • Freesia are very popularly used in perfume, scented oils and baths. {source}

    Hello Vanessa, those are lovely flower arrangements, so dainty, simple but elegant. I don’t know this flower however, because i am from the tropics. But we dont have winter so our flowers are around all the time. Today i am off to a garden show, and I am excited again, hoping to post a lot of orchids next week.

    Freesias are a real favorite of mine. I love their shape, their wonderful color and their smell. It is perfect in your white container.

    I used to grow fressia in my garden. I think they smell like black pepper. It’s an odd smell.

    I love having floweers about. I just pruned my plum tree and brought in a ton of branches that are budding. They’re on the kitchen table in a fishbowl case right now, and they should be open soon.
