Florets - Floral Quote - # 62 - by Isabelle Palmer

"Flower arranging is often regarded as a rather staid and old-fashioned hobby. However, there has recently been a noticeable resurgence in floral arrangements, with edgier displays featuring wilder flowers that are markedly different from commercial flowers. Flower arranging is a wonderful pastime; I love whiling away an afternoon arranging my favourite flowers - it's a creative, rewarding, and therapeutic activity."

Flower arranging is a beautiful hobby. Still cut, it is a pity to throw them away. Until, finally, need to lay a flower into the water on the saucer.
A beautiful sunny Sunday.

I don't think it's old fashioned, even more, I think it's hard!

Ja nog är det är en gammeldags hobby men en alldeles underbar hobby också! Kan man någonsin bli trött på blommor?
