Florets - Floral Quote - # 122 - by Tricia Guild



"Flowers in themselves are neither old-fashioned nor new. Like clothes, it is the way in which they are used that lets them be seen in new ways. Displayed singly, in a simple glass vase, even traditional, cottage-garden flowers such as pansies, nasturtiums and love-in-the-mist can be seen in all their startling, sculptural beauty. Gerberas or cultivated orchids have the graphic impact of an abstract painting. Be brave. Use clashing colours. Play with patterns and textures. The boldest blooms will stand out against the brightest colours."
~ Tricia Guild and Elspeth Thompson ~

Dear Ingrid, I like this quote very much, and it was nice to see Ms Thompson's name also attached to the wise words.

The colors in the photograph are very much the combination I associate with Tricia Guild. Happy Sunday for sure! xo
