Florets - Floral Quote - # 149 - by Rachel Siegfried



'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.



" A top favourite for many, the tulips celebrates spring with a real panache. I always feel spoilt by the overwhelming choice of colour and variety this flamboyant flower provides after the limited palette of the winter months. Unlike most other flowers, tulips continue to grow after they are cut, stretching and bending towards the light. This makes them an unpredictable, but fascinating addition to an arrangement."
