Welcome my fellow flower and blue lovers! Did you know that today is known as the “blue-est” day of the year? Officially called Blue Monday, it’s the name given to the third Monday in January. I’m just ignoring that it’s rumored to be the saddest day of the year, and making my own blue floral happiness together with you. Let’s look at the bright side of blue – A Blue Monday Morning Blooms!

WELCOME TO MONDAY MORNING BLOOMS.

 

 

I hope you will enjoy this post, it’s not like the other ones. Mr. FGH has just had a 2 day hospital stay for the removal of quite a large kidney stone. So instead of preparing a beautiful January blues floral arrangement, I’ve spent my time in the ER for a day, going to and from the hospital etc. Praise God he’s home and recovering!

I hope you forgive me, I’ve put together some blue inspiration for us to share instead of making the flowers I planned.  And I’m cooking up a storm to get Mr. FGH’s strength back, a lot of chicken soup, pasta and other things known to be comforting and healing!

My sweet flower friends Pam, Mary and Shirley are sharing their January flowers as planned, I know you will want to visit them and see all the inspirational beauty they’re sharing today! I’ll put their links at the bottom of this post, and will see you there later.

It’s a scientifically proven fact: flowers boost your mood, improve our mental health and make us happy!  I know I’ve certainly seen the power of flowers here at FrenchGardenHouse. The living room just doesn’t seem complete without flowers.  Even when I came home alone late at night from the ER {and believe me, I am more than grateful that it wasn’t anything super serious!} it was a joy to see a beautiful arrangement of hydrangeas on the table to greet me.

I think the power of flowers is sometimes greatly underestimated.  It only takes one small flower to bring joy to our hearts. When I was little, the first crocus pushing through the snow was something my grandparents celebrated. Often with an extra cookie and chocolate for me at tea time! Because spring was on it’s way, and those first flowers were so cherished by us.

I don’t know about you, but I’m already anxious for sunny spring days. Our potting bench always looks so good with blue flowers early in the spring. I’m planning to buy some beautiful new plants for the garden in the back. Our winter storms have done some damage and there are some “holes” in Mr. FGH’s garden plots that I can’t wait to shop for.

Do you make garden lists of plants you want to grow and or buy this far ahead?  I find it’s so encouraging to do this in January.

I hope you have enjoyed A Blue Monday Morning Blooms post, despite the fact that I wasn’t able to create a beautiful floral arrangement this time.
