Sunday Flowers

Last weekend Mum and I went to the local flower markets.

It was so lovely to just wander around, look and smell all the beautiful flowers. Ever time I go there I am amazed to find flowers I have never heard of or seen before.

I was hoping to find some of the first Peonies (my favourite) for the season however they had sold the few bunches they received.

Instead I bought these bright and cheery flowers! They are huge - I'm not joking the biggest ones are the size of dinner plates!!

They have been cheerily sitting on my dining table and I can't help but smile every time I walk past them!!

It's amazing how having a bunch of flowers in the house just lifts your mood.

I'd love to know what your favourite flowers are!

Hope you are having a relaxing Sunday.



  1. OMG!! They are just beautiful Trish! They would most certainly brighten up any household wouldn't they? We have nothing like those here in Mackay unfortunately.............heck we only just got a Myer store! lol


  2. Those flowers would bring me a smile every time I walked past, too! They're gorgeous! I haven't been to the flower markets for a few years. The last time I went, I picked up daffodils, jonquils, gerberas, irises, freesias...all my favourites. I also love roses, but I prefer them on the bush and highly fragrant. I don't like those flower shop scentless monsters that drop their heads the minute you bring them home. ;-)

  3. Those are definitely 'happy' flowers and would be sure to brighten any house. My favourite flowers are ranunculi but I do adore good old roses too x

  4. These gorgeous bright flowers would have looked perfect on your dining table! Beautiful. xox

  5. Wow - what colour! I love that they're so big, too; what happy flowers. Peonies are my hands-down favourites, too! Tulips are a close second.


Thanks for taking the time to leave some love xox
