A lot of people have asked me why Blunty and Blooms as a blog name? Well simply, Blunt is my surname and that's given me the nickname of 'Blunty' and Blooms refers to my love of flowers (or Blooms) I think fits better than Blunty and Flowers. So why do blooms make me happy? I think they lift the soul, there's something about having a vase of flowers in a room, in the garden, on a front door that make me happy. There have been many scientific studies on how flowers can relieve some of the stress in our lives. Bringing some nature into the picture cheers people up- FACT. Flowers have a long-term positive effect on moods. The participants in the flower study showed that you feel less depressed, anxious and agitated after receiving flowers, and demonstrated a higher sense of enjoyment and life satisfaction. Flowers make intimate connections. So that's why I chose this name.
