Flowers by Louesa Roebuck
Happy Sunday!

A brilliant floral moment as created by Louesa Roebuck (yes, an inspiration and hero of mine in the natural world)! The dried with the fresh! 

What is informing your work these days, dear reader?

There is an inherent generosity to floristry that is also very present here despite all the hard edge we’ve been talking about. Flowers are a gift. The garden in front of the shop is a gift to our neighbours and a gift to the passers-by. Even this store is a gift. Obviously receiving our flowers is a gift! But it’s a gift to all of us that get to work in this context. There is an effort towards some kind of purity in our work, an aesthetic purity more than anything.
-Emily Thompson for The Garden Edit

Take a moment to read what the very savvy, well-spoken and wonderful Emily Thompson has to say in regards to flowers in this triumphant article! I AGREE WITH IT ALL. Especially what people expect when they receive flowers - this sort of trained in-the-box view of what flowers 'should' be as determined by whom exactly?  I know that there is a shift in the paradigm of the flower world that is slowly but surely happening and I want to be at the forefront of it. Bravo Emily and team!
