Florets - Floral Quote - # 51 - by Shane Connolly



"Spring, as it gathers pace, releases wave after wave of sensory delights and combines them with an innocent natural prettiness. I always try to capture that pure, unsophisticated charm when I use spring flowers and plants at home. But, above all, I relish the sense of excitement and anticipation that spring's growing bulbs and opening blossoms give me at the start of each year."

These are one of my favorite flowers, Ingrid. Maybe because they are the first to bloom as winter leaves us. Unfortunately, ours are buried under more than 2 feet of snow right now, so I think it will be a while before we see them.

I hope you've had a wonderful weekend. xo.

There really is something remarkable about how a flowering plant does manage to create that bloom. Nature is filled with such miracles. Year after year, season after season, but for me...spring is the best time.
