Last week we discovered the Wild Flowers Company. Imagine your little one breathlessly racing back to your side with a bouquet of everything that the English countryside has to offer. No imported, mass produced, chemical laden flowers – just pure, naturally grown seasonal wild flowers from British gardens.
There are posies, arrangements and beautiful bouquets – at a fraction of the price of a high street bouquet – and the flowers are SEASONAL. I had no idea what to expect, which saddened me. We have completely lost touch with our landscape.
Our breathtaking bouquet featured pussy willows – I haven’t seen those since I was a little girl myself – and our bouquet was enormous. Not just a few flowers and then bunches of filler, but so many blooms that even my little ones selected a colourful posy each to sell in their own flower market role play. I’ve used combinations of flowers and foliage all week in different shoots, combining and having fun with the carefree, twirly stems and fresh leaves. At one point I had 14 different vases, jam jars and bottles in my kitchen, playing like a preschooler.
Has your week been as beautiful? Share with us!
Disclosure: We received flowers from Wild Flowers Company in exchange for promotion of their business, and we’re delighted to endorse them.
