On A Rainy Day …Floral Friday

There are plenty of old sayings about days when we receive rain.  We’re told to save our money for a rainy day. It is recommended to have activities for children to play on a rainy day. Some people claim that they curl up in bed with their pets on rainy days. Other’s like to use rainy days to catch up on their reading.

As far as my personal preferences go, I feel unsettled with nervous energy when precipitation falls from the sky. Rainy days are the best days for my hobbies, especially for experimenting with flower arrangements.


Oftentimes, I notice after the fact that at least one of the arrangements matches my mood at the time.  The old decorated Indian brass vase looks and feels heavy.  The dark red flowers reflect the heavy rain outdoors but the right side exhibits a lighter, optimistic streak that I was struggling to attain.


Why struggle to find cheerfulness when there’s a light-hearted cow planter at hand?  The Napcoware container is just right for something light.


Some folks feel nostalgic on rainy days.  This emotion was manifested with an old USA planter dish filled with artificial floral accents that are more than a couple decades old. This collection reminds me of when I first started tinkering with this hobby.

J 7-1-01The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes Dr. Seuss. “The problem with writing a book in verse is, to be successful, it has to sound like you knocked it off on a rainy Friday afternoon. It has to sound easy. When you can do it, it helps tremendously because it’s a thing that forces kids to read on. You have this unconsummated feeling if you stop.
