It’s British Flowers Week and I’ve just got in from a posy-making workshop held at Mboutique in Dundee City centre, led by local company Blooming Bees. Based near Forfar, Blooming Bees specialises in growing seasonal, local flowers and selling beautiful bouquets.
It was a lovely event combining two of my favourite things: clothes and flowers. I need to develop my skills as a florist, I think, but I did enjoy selecting different flowers and foliage, and they smell beautiful. Plus I learnt about the different types of flowers that grow successfully in this part of the world and how to look after them in the home.
This has inspired me to try to grow some colourful flowers in the garden, and to appreciate the greenery that is currently out there!
