Flowers and vases

Every now and then I get asked to produce a floral image with a specific tone or theme. My current project was a request to use green blooms. I decided to opt for green carnations and combined them with some white roses from my garden. This is the result.

February: Love Actually is all around

Ah February – the month to remember love! So whether it’s new love, old love, lost love or anticipated love – enjoy sharing the love – it is actually all around.

Carnation red

As Wet Wet Wet sang – you can feel it in your fingers and toes! I will leave you with this lovely quote from one of my all time favourite movies, Love Actually :

Prime Minister: Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion’s starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often, it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it’s always there – fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge – they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll find that love actually is all around.

Variegated Pink Carnations

Missed my flowers and since people seem to be getting in the mood for Valentine’s Day I decided to go with some pink carnations.
