I love flowers and all that they signify. Life. Love. Promise. Commitment. Hope. I love the work of Saskia Hevekes @ Grandiflora. An artist creating interest and inspiration.
But in recent years I have enjoyed receiving homegrown flowers made into special bouquets. A combination of herbs, leaves, blooms and hand tied with string and ribbon, often travelling in a clean jam jar to stay fresh on the journey.
Do you have a favourite flower? For me it is roses, magnolias, peonies and lilies. I love flowers.
It is spring here and each day there is more and more evidence of new life, of blooms burgeoning into colour and design that astound me. I have always loved beautiful flowers. Fresh bunches from the market. A gift of blooms to celebrate or say a word when there are no words to say. A handpicked posy from a little person or a well curated gathering of seasonal flowers, leaves and herbs.
The earth laughs in flowers. And flowers bring us that joy again. It is a reminder of our creator who smiles over all.
Thank you Thicket!
