I have always been slightly obsessed with flowers and herbs picked from a garden. There is just something warm, inviting, friendly and familiar about the scents and textures of homegrown flowers. The stories they tell – where they grew, who planted them, what experiences they remind you of. The little ‘surprises’ around every corner, the seasonal flowers that pop-up over night. A few of our close friends recently held a surprise birthday party for my dear friend Sarah and each guest brought an arm full of flowers, herbs and blossoms from their garden for me to decorate the table with. I had so much fun creating with each friend’s special offering. Not even ONE flower was bought for this photoshoot. All of the flowers were picked by myself from different gardens.
