Florets - Floral Quote # 48 by Jane Packer




"For me, the entrance hall is one area of my home that cries out for fresh flowers. It's the place where I welcome my guests, and I enjoy transforming it with the use of flowers. After all, first impressions count, and you never know who is going to pop round for a visit! I love using scented blooms in the hallway to greet you with their evocative perfume when you step through the front door after a long hard day. My favourites would have to be lavender, sweet peas, peonies, Paperwhite narcissus and hyacinths."
