Florets - Floral Quote by Shane Connolly





"In fact I like to think that home flowers are like good home cooking: Get the best, freshest, seasonal ingredients and do the least amount with them to give the best result. Let the ingredients speak for themselves."
~ Shane Connolly ~

Totally agree, the beauty and uniqueness of the flower is everything. Less is much more in the case of flowers. Beautiful violets.
