Can you sniff a little whiff of spring in the air? It may be hard to imagine spring is just around the corner, but we start noticing the change as soon as early season bloomers make their way into the markets.
Opening boxes of fresh flowers to discover the first bunch of sweet peas showing their super sweet little faces for the year, is cause for GREAT EXCITEMENT.
The same goes for other special florist favourites; the first tiny bunch of violets, daffodils, Lily of the Valley, blossom and dogwood branches, David Austin roses, hydrangea, rhododendron, Cymbidium orchids, lilac, gardenias and peonies (I could go on here); the buzz of discovery never gets tired.
We wave one of these cheeky new season bunches in the air for all the team to see, and pass around for a unison of oohs and aahs. Noses are buried into the flower heads to drink in the scents of those extra special flowers, like the slow-growing super special Daphne that smells like fruit tingles, yum!
And as ‘floral artisans’, the signs of a season change mean we get to start playing with new colours, shapes, and textures.
So on that note, it’s time to get inspired along with us. Check out our latest mood boards on Pinterest and share the excitement about the pending onset of beautiful spring flowers…
