best thing about being a florist: the smiles you get...someone once said to me "everyone loves the florist." i didn't know what she meant at the time; but now i realise. it's lovely- to open your doors to smiles and hello's; like everyone walking by is an old friend.
favourite flower combination: as long as each combination has interesting berries and foliages, they all become a favourite. a flower may not always be the focal point; textural twigs can sometimes work just as well; i loose it with lychen....love!
most memorable event/occasion you have done flowers for: my wedding! and yes, i was crazy enough to do the flowers at my own wedding, but well worth it. lily of the valley, tree peonies, lilac clusters, hellebores and seasonal spring blooms all beautifully made are vintage secret garden theme come to life.
you are inspired by: wild gardens, farms, country surroundings
you are passionate about: flowers- its simple, they just make me happy. this morning at the flower markets i spotted some tree anemones; i got so excited because i thought they were already gone for the season! it's the simple things.
