Join in with The Lonely Bouquet Day
Emily, from America, is the owner of a Belgian flower picking garden, named Fleuropean. She's thought of a way to make people happy by naming a special day: The Lonely Bouquet Day. On this day strangers make each other happy with flowers. The idea is beautifully simple: (1) place flowers in a pot or a vase of water on the street, (2) hang a card on them with the message “take me with you”, (3) maybe write another message on it as well and (4) leave these for a random passer-by. (5) A smile is sure to appear.
Flowers around the world
Emily has spread flowers all over the world including in San Francisco, Cologne, Ghent, Malibu, Maastricht, San Rafael andmany others. After she asked people to join in with the Lonely Bouquet Day last year, the flowers spread even further. From Mexico to South Africa, England to Australia... Add your village or city to the list on Sunday the 26th June and join in with The Lonely Bouquet Day.
