A really Pretty Basket of Flowers for Today


I think when you make yourself a pretty vase of flowers

or you can make up a basket of flowers

as a gift for yourself to put in your living room

it really does lift your spirits and you can have a more



The above flowers are standing in wet oasis in the basket which is put into a container so that they don’t drip through the bottom of the basket.

– however they will not last as long if they are not in a vase of  water…..

So if you don’t want to take them out of the oasis to disturb your arrangement,

you can lift it all out and put oasis with the flowers into a bowl of water

then they can drink better for a few days.


This is a good way to make yourself a special arrangement

instead of just putting odd flowers into a jug or vase of water.

Oasis is not very expensive and you can reuse it a few times.

Here is a Poem:

All the Flowers:

All the flowers their faces lift

to the sky and never cry,

for anything us mortals need

except – maybe for their seed,

to carry out their fruitfulness,

of reproducing God’s good work,

in making flowers of glorious hue

for the likes of Me and You.


Psalm:  133 verse 1:  Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!


* I hope you have a lovely Day *
