This morning in the garden, I have found, Snowdrops, Skimmia, Paperwhites, Christmas Box, winter Honeysuckle, Violets, Primroses, Rosemary, Ivy, Fennel....the scent is amazing. Even in the depths of winter it is still possible to find beauty in the garden.
Today we are warned of snow to come and so I thought I should see what is in the garden before it is covered?? The wind is bitter here today, although there is glorious sunshine. Winter is a difficult time, the dark and cold ....so a few thoughts about things you might do to cheer yourself and stay connected with your garden.
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.
