I don’t think I would like to have this particular plant in my farm, especially because in summer I go out to the yard to inspect my and detect larvas, caterpillars with an ultraviolet lamp, and seeing this scary flower would probably be a deterrent for me to keep on doing what I have being doing for years 🤣😁
Coffee and flower, a wonderful combination. What’s more, I will make some interesting and beautiful quotes’ inspiration in this leisure time.
“THE POWERS OF A MAN’S MIND ARE DIRECTLY PROPORTIONED TO THE QUANTITY OF COFFEE HE DRINKS.” – SIR JAMES MACKINTOSH

When there is love for chocolate and flowers, you don´t need Valentine´s Day.
These choco-roses are gorgeous, delicious flowers made out of a modeling material.
They also look wonderful in white. I love this version that was made for Valentines Day from Elizabeth of Sugar Hero. The gentle fold of the petals looks like they are so fresh and are just opening up. They are the perfect atop çher triple swirl frosting!
FIGHT ANXIETY WITH FLOWERS BEAUTY AND RELAXATION POWERS
Flowers relax the brain with their colors and beauty (vision), their essence (smell), their texture (touch).
Constant stimuli to the brain can create havoc on our central nervous system, and thus to our way of living.
Learning to relax is primordial, and flowers, herbs and plants can play an important role taking the stress away from your life.
1. Jasmine improves sleep and anxiety
Jasmine is a shrub found outdoors, but with proper care and the right location you can grow it indoors. Its fragrance is not only sweet to our senses, it’s proven to promote a better night’s sleep.
If you surround yourself by jasmine, it’s likely you’ll feel less anxious and more at peace, which results in waking up more alert.
Sleep plays an important role in our physical and mental wellbeing. If you’re lacking in sleep, you may find you have trouble making decisions, controlling your emotions, solving problems and coping with change.
2. Gerbera daisy helps to remove toxins from the air
It removes benzene from the air – a chemical associated with inks. Add one to your office, laundry room or bedroom to promote a calming ambience and fight anxiety.
Mist the leaves a few times a week. When this flower blooms, its colourful petals can last up to two weeks. The pretty hue not only adds energy to our homes, but having brightly coloured plants in the house and office also helps to promote happiness.
Each day is born with a sunrise
and ends in a sunset, the same way we
open our eyes to see the light,
and close them to hear the dark.
You have no control over
how your story begins or ends.
But by now, you should know that
all things have an ending.
Every spark returns to darkness.
Every sound returns to silence.
And every flower returns to sleep
with the earth.
The journey of the sun
and moon is predictable.
is your ultimate
― Suzy Kassem
