Hey everyone. Here is a little update from the last few days. On Saturday I went for a walk through Bury, I managed to pick up a few floral goodies from the market. I also went for a long walk outside town and picked a few wildflowers. Love that lavender coloured scabiosa.
My own grown ranunculus, arent they stunning?? I am dreaming of my own cut flower garden one day. I also got some peonies from the Flower Hut. The astilbe is from the market. I absolutely love Astilbe, it must be one of my favourite fillers. So beautiful by itself too. The pink pointy flower is Linaria purpura, which I see here and there. It spreads very easily and I would love to grow it in my own garden on day.
I discovered this book in Gillian’s cupboards yesterday. It´s called “The flower recipe book” by Alethea Harampolis and Jill Rizzo of Studio Choo. I loved it and I think you would love it too, that is if you’re into flowers and floral design of course. It’s a great beginner guide too. As I am not British I sometimes struggle to find the right names and phrases in English, especially when I am doing my floral videos. I, therefore, watch a lot of English floral tutorials just to learn how to better explain my methods. This book was really helpful too.
Anyhow. Guess who just logged into a webshop of floral sensation!! I have opened up an account with Van der Plas and I will click in a delivery as soon as am back at Lalande. I am counting the days!!
Hope you are well. Stay safe xx
