"Scabiosa were once my very favourite flower - I just couldn't believe the detail of each fragile flowerhead. This was back at the very beginning of my career when there wasn't as big a choice of flowers as there is now. Even now, when I see the first scabiosa of the season I can't help but smile. I am reminded of my past love for them and I always take a bunch home where I can admire them all day"

I'm back from my summer break and will be posting some more lovely 'Florets' - floral quotes by florists, garden writers and other flower lovers. I hope you'll enjoy them!
Wishing You a Wonderful Floral Sunday!
