WORDS BY COBY RENKIN

Send flowers to someone you love.

Melbourne and Sydney might be on the home stretch of their respective lockdowns, but after months stuck in our houses, the days aren’t necessarily getting any easier.

If the last 18 months have taught us anything, it’s that it really is the little things in life that make all the difference. A gesture as simple as a flower delivery can be enough to lift our spirits and keep us going between endless Zoom calls and walks around the block.
