Mother's Day

Mother's Day is a great time for flowers.  Usually, we sell our flowers wholesale in large quantities, but being an artist, I love the creative challenge of making retail bunches.  I'm not trained in floristry so they are not technically well constructed, but I love combining colour and texture and making the flowers look their best.  My local General Store sells bunches for me, and I love the challenge of creating bunches that say "buy me" to shoppers.  This week, I made some Mother's Day bunches.  Here are a few snaps!

 From the field to the bucket, and from the bucket to the bunch!

 Happy Mother's Day

  1. Hi Grace,
    I would have bought them all, they are my wedding flowers! :) Not a florist!!! I would expect that as a very gifted artist that your eye sees more than most florists... You sculpture with an abundance of living flowers and folage that most of us can only afford once in a while. I love the smell of them, the feel of their petals and leaves and best of all their beauty leaves you breathless. If I could have one wish for a holiday alone, it would be to visit you, helping with your chores amongst the protea's on those amazing hillsides, looking over the unspoilt world around you. Breath it in Grace, I'm coming for coffee :))
    Blessings, Judy.
