Wild Flowers: Bringing the Outdoors In

I’ve always loved wildflowers even as a child.  I guess you could say I inherited it from my mother, who in turn got it from her mum.  There was always freshly picked flowers from the garden.  And I loved that.

As an adult, I’ve had that desire too, to be always surrounded by flowers, especially the ones that grow in the wild, I like to take them in with me…


I like looking around inside our house and seeing them there.  As the great French impressionist once said …

I must have flowers, always and always – Monet

And I so agree with him, always and always.  Now excuse me while I pick more flowers from our garden.

What about you?

Do you like wildflowers too?

Do share.


    • Thanks. I don’t really have a green thumb either (it’s my husband who does). But I like always having them around me.

    • Try it! It’s lovely to see them indoors too 🙂 Of course I only pick the ones in our very own garden.

  1. I adore flowers. My house is always full of flowers as it makes it smell and look nice. My cousin is also a florist and she has the most beautiful bouquets and arrangements but wild flowers are more rustic!

    • I love wild flowers inside the house precisely because of that reason – they give a more rustic feel! Although admittedly, I also buy bouquets when out shopping.

    I’m not much of a flower person, mostly because I forget about them and they die too quick as a result but they are beautiful and I love how you have them sitting on your book shelf. It’s a perfect picture that could be used in a calendar:)

  3. I love seeing flowers too but like some of your readers, I don’t have a green thumb! My mom and sister do though. Love your pics too!

    • Thank you. I don’t either. It’s my husband who does. I’m known to over-water plants in the past 🙁

    • I can imagine how difficult it must be to have flowers with a toddler. Thankfully T is old enough to know not touch mummy’s flowers. x

    • I love them too. In our old house where we only had a postage-stamp sized garden, we didn’t have any wild flowers growing there. But this garden has, and it’s one of the reasons why I love this house 🙂

  4. what beautiful flowers.. the wildest flowers are the prettiest aren’t they .. i love when my little girl picks flowers for me its also the sweetest present

    • Definitely! Plus, I only pick those in my garden. Would never think of picking them elsewhere.

    • Same with T. I love how their first thought is to give it to us 🙂

    I actually think wildflowers are prettier than others. There’s a lady at a local market by us that sells them in the most beautiful bunches. They always look very vintage and rustic x

    • If only someone here also sold them. But so far, haven’t seen any. And that’s precisely why I love them. I kinda like the vintage, rustic feel 😉 x

  6. I love all flowers. But picking flowers yourself is always much better.

  7. The longer I live in London, the more I appreciate things like wild flowers! It must be so nice to be able to just go outside and pick them!
