Florets - Floral Quote - # 163 - 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 the authors have written one or several books about flowers, green plants, 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 and plants.

I love books and in my ever growing library I look for quotes that I hope will be both inspiring and be useful while arranging flowers or green plants in your home.

"Flowering Plants and displays indoors are essential to get one through the winter gloom. The barren trees and bushes in my garden and the wider landscape and bundles of twigs at the flower market suggests new designs.
I spend more time working with foliages and I am inevitably drawn more often to fruits and vegetables to inspire my creations. Some mornings the mist seem to meet the garden as everything in England looks grey."
