Kathrine Quite Month

Well, January has gone with its cold snap and grey days, February has only two weeks to go...the bulbs have started to appear and the days are getting longer.

It can only get better..

These last two months in the horticultural and flower calendars are quiet, a time to reflect over the last year and look forward to what this year may hold.

Having said that, we have had a few projects.

We were asked to do an arrangement for a Valentine photo shoot for Maxwell Scott bags, this was a treat as the brief was for an arrangement based on the old master paintings, one of my favorite styles.

The depth of colours and flower shapes that can be chosen is endless. So I thoroughly enjoyed bringing this arrangement together.

It was great to be asked and be involved with the promotion of such a lovely product. I love the photographs with the bags, and the article about the meaning of flowers.

I was however a little daunted by the prospect of being featured in the journal 'a day in the life....of a florist'

but it definitely made me think.....

We also were asked to do some flowers for the De Grey Rooms for their new brochure, but we haven't seen the photographs for this yet, looking forward to those....

Wedding inquires are starting to come in, we are planning the flower plot, and I am looking forward to being able to concentrate fully on Fleuradamo, spending more time focusing on growing a good selection of flowers and foliage to add to our designs.

We are looking forward to being at some new wedding fairs this year at Hawkhills and Jervaux (see details on the website) and being involved this year with York Fashion Week which runs from 25th -31st March.

Henri is getting some new seats and having his inside spruced up, ready for the new season, so you will see him out and about with flowers and at plant sales (for Springfield's nursery) in the coming year.
