A few weeks ago I mentioned that I recently took a floristry course and hinted that there was a reason for doing it.
I can now reveal that the reason is that I'm creating a Flower Farm!
I've been given the opportunity to do something different and this is what I really, really want to do. It combines several of my interests and passions and I have the space to do it right here. I'm starting small this year as a bit of trial but hope to be digging up more grass next year. I'm hoping to build up a customer base of florists and flower lovers as well as selling bouquets direct.
I've been working on my website www.floralacre.co.uk and have had to embrace social media. I've always kept away from them, and I was right they do take up a lot of time.
You'll fine me in Facebook and Instagram. If anyone knows CSS code please let me know as I need a little help with a small change.
I've collecting photographs of my own flowers and I made this bouquet with the lilac which has just come out.
Perhaps a little bit messy but it does have a country garden feel. Also starring are:
Some kind of Viburnum
Thank you all for your comments and encouragement on my efforts on Mondays. It's much appreciated and I've learnt plenty. I'm hoping to go on blogging but am currently finding there are not enough hours in the day. This spring has been particularly hectic for various reasons but I am hopeful that next month will be easier.
IAVOM has been one of many contributing factors in this decision. Thanks as usual to Cathy for hosting In a Vase on Monday and inspiring us to be creative.
