These were my mom’s favorite flowers to have around the house. She loved having fresh flowers around! She said they always brightened her day. Alstroemeria comes in a rainbow spectrum of colors, they last for a while and are usually one of the most affordable bouquets available at the grocery store. When she was sick I made sure she always had a fresh vase of Alstroemeria on the table next to her. I had Alstroemeria in my wedding bouquet in honor of her. My brother’s soon to be wife plans to also include these flowers in her bouquet too. To me, they serve as a reminder to enjoy the simple pleasures in life. Treat yourself! Life is just too short to not to.
