Photobombing bee!

So British Flowers Week started today and I made my first video clip of the week. I thought I would share it here with you. 

I have just finished co-hosting #britishflowers on Twitter. Tonight we were chatting about #britishflowersweek and how we would all be celebrating it, spreading the word about British Flowers, and generally just oohing and aaahing over the sumptuous photos that the Twitter folk were posting. In amongst the tweets I spotted a link from a wonderful lady called Fiona who runs Firenza Flowers. She has written a journal post about why she uses British Flowers as often as possible. Take a look at it here. She sums up how I as a grower feel about my "babies" that I have nurtured to the perfect point for cutting. I hope you enjoy her post as much as I did. 

I love the way our customers enjoy our flowers. They love the natural style of the flowers, and the fact that they are a lot different to a supermarket bunch. The sight or scent of them often trigger memories of loved ones no longer here, or happy times they spent as a child. They evoke nostalgia. Sweet William and Sweet Peas especially seem to have this effect.

So whatever you do this week to celebrate British Flowers Week, take time to stop and smell the roses, or the sweet peas, or whatever flowers you may have in your home or garden. Take time to smell them, look at them and really enjoy them. And if they are grown by an artisan flower grower know that they will have been grown with passion, love and commitment to bring you great joy. What more could you ask of a humble bloom.
