Flower Posters

Flower posters don't smell as nice as the real thing, but they do have their advantages. We never have to water them, they don't require any sunlight (in fact they tend to fade when exposed to too much), and they never die. Well they never actually live either, but what I'm getting at is that they last a lot longer than real flowers. Flower posters can be a lovely way to brighten up your room and keep you smiling on a rainy winter day.

Picking Flower Posters

If you have a flower that you're particularly fond of, the advantage of a flower poster (in addition to those listed above) is that you can look at it year-round. Flower posters come in every possible variety: you can get ones with roses, hyacinths, tulips, or any other kind of flower. You just have to decide which one you like best!

If you're both a flower and an art fan, you might want to think about buying flower posters that are reprints of paintings of flowers. Claude Monet spent a large part of his career painting the lovely flowers and plants in his garden at Giverny. Even if you've never been to France, you can share in the loveliness of his garden by getting yourself a poster of one of his paintings.

Flowers are a popular subject in paintings--impressionist paintings in particular. But flower paintings aren't the exclusive domain of the Impressionists; Georgia O'Keeffe painted a wide variety of flowers in her trademark style. Most, if not all of her paintings are available as posters.
