Getting Well With Flowers

If you have something special in mind for your ailing friend or loved one, look no further than flowers. A bright, bountiful bouquet is just the thing when someone is feeling more than the winter blues and needs a good dose of sunshine and cheer. Flowers, studies show, are major mood enhancers, and they also promote a positive outlook. Patients who have flowers or potted plants in their hospital rooms use less pain medication and have lower blood pressure than their flower-less counterparts.

We here at Gordon Boswell have a rich collection of get well flowers designed to perk up anyone suffering during cold and flu season.

Start with the garden, we say, specifically our Garden of Wellness, which is cheer personified. Orange roses, sunflowers and daisies happily commingle with button mums and other flowers and greens. Topped off with a whir of bees, a piece like this reminds someone who is likely bedridden or home bound that nature is truly the best medicine. 

The container here communicates the message along with the flowers themselves, and makes for an upbeat piece to keep around the home.

When you’re shopping flowers for someone who is under the weather, consider allergies or sensitivity to fragrances. The hope is that they’ll keep your arrangement close by, the better to view it more often, and you don’t want your selection to have any adverse effects. Let us at Gordon Boswell help you choose the perfect piece to cheer up someone who needs it the most.
