Once winter has us in its grip we are forced to spend more time indoors, using fresh flowers to help make our immediate environment as cheerful and bright and as visually stimulating as possible makes good sense. Most of the flowers that you buy - even at this time of year - will have felt the warmth of the sun on them and when you bring them home with you some of that warmth will come with them. Quite possibly they'll add some fragrance to your home too.
