Add whimsical touches to gardens and bouquets

Adding personal touches to gardens can add a quirkiness that makes them lovable, Steve Whysall writes for the Edmonton Journal.

He explains his visit to Nicole Delange's garden in the Berry region of France, where she had placed statues, many of them her own ceramic pieces, around the plants and flowers in the garden. Hands pointed in various directions, animal heads poked out of bushes, and folksy-looking people figures "frolicked in the foliage," Whysall reports.

"To work, quirkiness needs to sneak up on you, take you completely by surprise with delight," Whysall writes. "At its best, quirkiness is totally eccentric, slightly surreal, even bizarre, but with a whimsical side that's more funny than freaky," he writes.

Sending a quirky or whimsical floral arrangement may be the perfect way to make someone smile. Whether a miniature green "Money Tree" or a sunny bouquet of roses and daisies in a smiling mug, flowers are the perfect way to brighten someone's day.

All of the faces in Delange's garden had smiles on, because she didn't want any scowling in her garden, she told Whysall. "Good policy," he wrote.
