Friday Three: Flowers

Despite my Anthophobia, which seems to just concern cut flowers, I still have a liking of some flowers. Of course anosmia doesn’t help when it comes to flowers, but that’s a different matter. So here’s my Friday three.

Favourite: Kangaroo Paw


I Love the Kangaroo Paw. It’s shape, texture, and range of colours make it a beautiful flower in my book. It even makes an appearance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which keeps the link of American films using Australian stuff as strange, exotic, and out of this world.

Australian: Eucalyptus Flower


From Snuggle Pot and Cuddlepie, though to the beauty of the Australian bush. Seeing a eucalyptus tree in full bloom is a sight to behold.

Memorable: Sweet Pea

The Sweet Pea is the flower I have tattooed on my arm, to remind me of my friend Paige. A tall delicate flower, traditionally planted on St.Patrick’s Day, it is a fitting tribute to her. Paige was from Ireland, and certainly was a tall but delicate flower. I’m always reminded of her when I see Sweet Peas in bloom.
