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.

Earth Laughs in 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.
