Being a Leap year this is apparently the day for ladies to propose marriage to their beau, does that really happen? I think women have been proposing marriage on any day of the year for a long time. The young women I see around me are strong and independent and I don't think would wait on tradition in this way but I might be wrong.
They do still love the romance of a wedding day and do so in their own style.
Over the next week/ ten days there is a Mother's Day and also International Women's Day so all in all every reason to celebrate the women in our lives.
Somewhere recently I saw the line " wouldn't the world be better if it was run by grandmas" I can't remember where I saw it or who to attribute it to but it got me thinking.....
My story in flowers started as a child growing a tiny patch of London Pride Saxifraga...also known as Whimsey or Look Up and Kiss Me! Fast forward to 8 years ago when I started a City and Guilds training in floristry. I qualified as a florist and then to deepen my growing knowledge and skills I trained in horticulture as well. I trained under a WRAGS scheme at Darsham Nurseries and at Somerleyton Hall. Developing a passion for both growing and designing/arranging British garden flowers, I planted a cutting garden. Having become increasingly concerned about where and how flowers are grown, coupled with a love of British grown flowers. and natural styling, I now specialise in growing and using beautiful British grown flowers to make romantic natural designs. for weddings, events, gifts and much more.
