Florets - Floral Quote - # 55 - by Tricia Guild & Elspeth Thompson



"Energy. A flower is a living thing, bringing the vibrations of the natural world into your home. Different flowers have different moods and energies. Learn to discriminate between them. With their bright colours and neat, radiating petals, dahlias almost look cheerful. Black calla lilies are sultry and sensual. Small posies of garden flowers create a mood of intimacy, while feathery cow parsley adds lightness and romance. Bold arrangements of a few bright blooms can raise the energy in a basement or dark hallway."

I so love parrot tulips, but we don't see them here that often. These are such a wonderful color, and I love the container that they are in.

Have a wonderful week ahead, Ingrid. xo.
