Although it probably is early to enjoy fresh cut flowers from your garden, you can still partake of the color, beauty, and fragrance that they bring into your home by treating yourself to fresh flowers available at your neighborhood supermarket or florist. Many markets offer a variety of sweet bunches of fresh flowers for less than ten dollars. Both flowers and live plants are carriers of rejuvenating yang energy.
Any room is enhanced with fresh flowers, although there are differing Feng Shui opinions as to their appropriateness in the bedroom. This is because the bedroom—as a place of rest—should be slightly yin to induce and enhance sleep. Personally, I can’t think of a nicer way to doze off and travel to the realms of restful, rejuvenating sleep than being bathed in the fragrance of fresh roses! When a bedroom is a place of convalescence, filling the room with flowers is very beneficial during recovery and healing, as the occupant is continuously bathed in positive yang qi.
