Florets - Floral Quote - # 150 - by Rebekah Clark Moody



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.



" Spring is such a special time of year! Nature begins to come out of dormancy, and the flowers and trees begin to bloom. Every day, a little more life and color come back into nature. By midspring, the world is in full bloom. Everywhere you look is covered in flowers, from the most delicate clematis to the ever-so-hardy azalea. Some of the flowers growing in your own backyard can be more beautiful than the most perfect peony, in my humble opinion. The deciduous foliage that has been absent is back and ready to use."
