Florets - Floral Quote - # 63 - by Tricia Guild and Elspeth Thompson



"Flowers can be the purest expression of joy in a house. In particular, they can raise the spirits on entering. Have flowers in the hall that make you feel glad to come home. The bright, pure beauty of gerberas looks particularly joyful against a coloured wall - and the wild, painterly patterns of parrot tulips have all the energy of an artist's brush. In other rooms, place flowers where a sudden shaft of sunlight will illuminate the petals. Even on the dullest winter's day, flowers are a sign of life and hope and sheer exuberance."
