Florets - Floral Quote - # 145 - by Selina Lake



'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 while arranging and styling flowers.  



"Spring - We welcome the first signs of spring as the bulbs planted the previous autumn bursts into flower, giving an array of sunny yellow daffodils, hyacinths tulips and giant alliums. The white magnolia and cherry blossom trees begin to bloom and for a few weeks the blossom is heavenly - I always cut a few stems to enjoy indoors."

Enjoy your flower arranging and have a fabulous and floral Sunday!

Thank you for visiting 'Of Spring and Summer' - I will be back on Monday morning with another 'Floral Media' - showing a video featuring a botanical spring brunch - that I think we can all find inspiration from.
