Recently, I learned that in Sweden, doctors recommend to their patients to go for a medicine not to the pharmacy, but to the flower shop. Why? I think you guessed it. Flowers with their brightness and delicate aroma have a positive effect on the inner state of a person, in other words - they give a positive to others. But only in good spirits can you create and achieve good results. Therefore, the advice is one: start by going to the flower shop and buy a few pots of potted plants that bloom at different times so that you can always enjoy their beauty.
In the summer there is no shortage of flowers, as they can be seen in parks and just in flowerbeds. But in the winter with this there are small problems. Flowers can only be seen in the flower shop, in the winter garden or at home on the windowsill. In order for your home to always be beautiful and fresh flowers create comfort and good mood in your home, you should know about the period in which different flowers bloom. For example, it is winter now - cyclamen, guzmania, azalea, Decembrist, etc. are blooming. We will now talk about azaleas.

Most often they prefer to grow azalea Japanese or Indian. It is believed that these flowers support the energy of cheerfulness and cheerfulness in the house. Bioastrologists believe that this plant contains a lot of solar energy, and therefore it is especially recommended for those who find it difficult to wake up in the morning. If you want to always feel vigorous, cheerful, full of strength and energy, put a pot of azaleas at home. She will please you with her lively beauty and give a little sun, because it is so lacking in winter.
