We hope that wherever you are you're enjoying a sunshiny summer. Here in the UK, it seems we're more likely to be huddled under an umbrella avoiding (another) impromptu shower than strolling around twirling our sun parasols. So, to brighten things up a little bit and to give us all a little reminder of the colourful outdoors, we're bringing you Five Minutes of FLOWER POWER... Ready?  


Illustrator Buyoun Kim lives and works in New York City. Her work has been featured in the likes of Flow Magazine, Lucky Peach and The New Yorker. In the absence of vitamin D, just looking at these colour-pop plant prints will perk you up!

It's important sometimes to just stop and smell the roses. And sometimes it's fun to eat them. Roses, violets, marigolds and primroses are just some types of edible flowers that taste good AND look good. Add a pinch of flower power fun to snacks and drinks this summer with flower popsicles, petal garnished snack pots and pretty petal ice cubes! Be sure and identify the right kinds of flowers before you start munching them though, ok? You can find more info about what's edible and what's not from the Royal Horticultural Society

Next time you're looking for a summery / rainy day activity to do with the kids, maybe you could try this rainbow flower dyeing experiment

Just in case you were wondering, this is what it looks like when you blast 8 million flower petals and leaves across the landscape in Costa Rica. Pretty marvellous. The spectacular stunt was undertaken by ad agency McCann to promote Sony's 4K TV and photographed by Nick Meek. As tempting as it is to try this with your hydrangeas in the back garden, best leave the flower explosions to the experts!
