Florets - Floral Quote - # 151 - by Louesa Roebuck and Sarah Lonsdale


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.


"Wandering around one of David's many industrial remnant lumber piles, being careful of snakes, I found a bed of tiny densely blue forget-me-nots. I love them so - not native, invasive, and totally perfect to me, blue, blue, blue. They can get wild and leggy, they last forever, they summon so many corny, sentimental meanings, and did I say blue?"
