Mother's Day Sunday 30th March

Only a week to go so, this time next week it will all be over but there's a long way to go yet. Some flowers are already ordered due in for conditioning later in the week and others still to be confirmed, if only I had a crystal ball. Spring and pink are always popular but we have a whole host of beauties on offer. I will try to remember to capture the moments as they arise but as is so often the case at peak times it's just too busy. So bring a smail to your mum's face with pretty blooms.

Floral Colour - Florists frustration

I am sure this happens in many a trade or profession and hence why the 'pantone'colour chart was developed. For this weekends 'peaches and cream'wedding I ordered 'salmon'ranunculus as I wanted a nice pastel peach, it said salmon on the label but they were definately orange!However all was not lost as the David Austin 'Juliet' rose came up trumps so along with a few more blooms, I think the desired affect was achieved.
Blue and cream are tricky one's too as blue in floristry speak is so often purple and cream turns up yellow! And that is where experience comes in.
