A few flowers for your weekend. We are living through strange times right now, and as usual it seems that the best that each of us can do is to be kind, be careful and watch over those we love.
Here, faced with this virus we are simply trying to be attentive, and respectful, and to live normally. We’re also shopping normally, to support our local suppliers. The last thing we all need at this point is a huge economic crisis.
I will never get political on this blog, just not who I am. And I certainly don’t have any words of advice or solution, but to bring you some solace and a touch of pretty for your weekend, here is a bouquet of Spring blooms.
To make the bouquet
I shopped at my local florist (it’s so important to keep supporting local businesses guys!), and came home with these beautiful roses, ammi majus, tulips and ranunculus. I added a few hellebore from the garden, and some Prunus blossom for the taller branches.
I used a tall iron urn, with a little chicken wire inside to support the stems, and built up the arrangement little by little, keeping my ideal finished look in mind.
And the flowers lying on the table? Yes, I know, that does not work in real life, but hey this is a photoshoot and it’s all about smoke and mirrors, and whatever looks pretty for the lens.
Take care over the weekend. Wash your hands over and over, take the time to think positively about all the beauty in our world, and how much more we can do to take care of our planet. We can all get through this and emerge stronger and more mindful on the other side.
