Florets - Floral Quote - # 116 - by Hans Blomquist



"There are few things that add as much colour and happiness to a home as flowers - aside from family and friends, of course. I try to bring flowers into my home every week, as it makes such a difference to the way I feel and injects a sense of vitality that only flowers can achieve. Cut flowers can be expensive, but there are so many flowers growing in abundance in the garden and on common land that can make an even more beautiful bouquet than shop-bought flowers would do." "I am lucky enough to often be able to take flowers home from photoshoots that I have worked on where they have been used as props, but I also try to get out of Paris from time to time to pick some freely growing spring or summer flowers, as they are what I really prefer. The changing seasons mean that you can create different arrangements throughout the year."

The Blomquist quote expresses my own thoughts about what flowers add to a home...even though I don't buy them every week. I do, however, have quite a few of my paintings of flower arrangements hanging on my walls, reminding me of past purchases!

Your hydrangea arrangement and its setting offer such a restful, beautiful sight. Many thanks, Ingrid. xo

I do pick flowers from my garden (never buy cut flowers)
but our wildflowers are protected.
No picking allowed - we need to conserve both the wildlife they support and the seeds for next year.
