It is that time of year here when the lilac overlaps with the wisteria, and all my bouquets are mauve. The fragrances in the garden are quite divine at the moment, especially early early morning, when the grass is still wet with dew. I am fully aware of how lucky I am to have a garden in this time of confinement, and I’m trying to make the most of it each day.
Getting creative during each day has never been more important than during this period of social isolation. It keeps open channels of communication, it’s good for the soul and pretty much the best therapy that I know.
With the garden beginning to explode in colour, it is time to bring flowers into the house regularly. Small glasses with single blooms on a desk or night table, larger exuberant bouquets around the house. I made this bouquet using : two different shades of lilac; wisteria; pink tulips; euphorbia and some bronze leafed hazelnut. The result is a tall quite luxurious feeling bouquet, full of intense colour and tumbling shapes.
There is a video up on my Instagram stories, showing how to pull this together, just click here.
I hope that you are managing to connect with nature and your own creativity wherever you are in the world right now. Stay safe and take care.
