19/09/2018
For as long as I can remember, my mom has loved cultivating a large garden of herbs and flowers. "Gardening is my therapy," she always told me. And while, for a long time, I dismissed that as her excuse to visit Home Depot on a weekly basis, once I moved into a place of my own, the urge to nurture plants took hold of me, too. So are flowers really good for your health? Apparently, my mom had science on her side, so if you're wondering what in carnation will help soothe your frazzled nerves, look no further than a vase full of fresh flowers.

Learn How to Draw Thousands of Flowers Using the Same Simple Technique
18/09/2018
There are many ways to admire beautiful flowers that go beyond simply setting them in a vase. One way is to celebrate them through works of art. Flowers have a long place in art history, and various blossoms, as well as other botanical elements, have been a popular subject since Ancient Egypt. Since then, they’ve been found in many of the most significant art movements. You too can carry on this long tradition by learning how to draw a flower (or more). There are so many types of flowers in the world that it’s an impossible feat to learn how to draw each one. But what you can do is understand the basic structure of a flower and the general sketching techniques to express all of its idiosyncrasies. Whether you're trying to craft realistic flower art or stylized blooms, it’s important to note what’s beyond the petals. Just like drawing a cat, knowing the inner structure of a flower can inform the choices you make once you put pencil to paper.

The Scent Of A Flower
18/09/2018
 
Would a fresh bouquet of flowers lose its appeal if it didn’t smell? Or what if you could no longer buy your favorite perfume? Find out why scientists are studying how pollution is interfering with flowers’ scents. 
“I've always loved plants. I love flowers in particular; I love smelling them. I'm also really interested in chemistry. I actually majored in chemistry as an undergrad, and also perfumery. The research that I do, it's a perfect mix of all these topics of interest for me. I'm investigating in particular is how pollution affects the ability of floral scent to be transmitted through air,” said Jeremy Chan at the University of Washington.

When it comes to adding some new colour and charm to your garden, choosing the right flowers can be key. You could opt for classic red roses for a touch of traditional beauty or perhaps plant some bright yellow sunflowers to boost the feel-good vibes in your outside space.
