Florets - Floral Quote - # 143 - by Willow Crossley



Florets - Floral Quote' is a series of blog posts where I feature quotes by authors - mostly well known but you will also find some obscure ones.

All of them have written one or several books about flowers, gardening, interior styling or interior design. Many are experts in their field but what is the most important is that they are all passionate about flowers.

I love books and in my ever growing library I look for quotes that I hope will be both helpful and useful for everybody who is arranging and styling flowers.  


"Anemones are ridiculously pretty, so wispy and fragile with their paint-box silk petals and frilly leaves. They come in all shades of pink, blue, crimson, purple, scarlet, and white.
They are also amenable in arrangements and deceptively strong - you just need to be careful not to bash them about because their petals can tear or become stained by specks of pollen. 
Anemones are quite an extravagance to buy, but one way to eke them out while still creating a dazzling display is to line them up in individual containers. Try using traditional milk bottles, mini jam jars, test tubes, or vintage shot glasses."
