Florets - Floral Quote - # 146 - by Paula Pryke



'Florets - Floral Quote' is a series of blog posts where I feature quotes by authors - mostly well known - but you will also find some obscure ones.

All of them have written one or several books about flowers, gardening, interior styling or interior design. Many are experts in their field but what is the most important is that they are all passionate about flowers.

I love books and in my ever growing library I look for quotes that I hope will be both helpful and useful while arranging and styling flowers.  


"Pale creamy yellows are the essence of early spring. Nature is a great designer - you only have to look at the wild yellow daffodils and soft yellow primroses growing in woodland and on roadside verges for colour inspiration. Early flowering bulbs such as narcissi and hyacinths are also highly fragrant and this is one of the added pleasures of the season. Spring yellow from cream to bright yellow offer an easy palette for the flower arranger as they mix happily with fresh lime-green foliage which is in plentiful supply at this time of year."
