Country Blooms

The word ‘Country’ means different things to different people. For some, it is a place. To others, it is a state of mind. For flower farmers like us, it means a little of both. Flowers that look as if they’d been freshly picked from the field or garden are reminders of a special time or place, even if it’s simply a place you remember from a trip out of town. For my design, I mixed a few different Proteaceae, including Leucadendron, Leucospermum, Grevillea, Isopogon and even some twigs from my garden.

A container such as a watering can is a cherished emblem of the 'country style', a way of decorating that is cozy and informal and easy to live with. Another might be a milk churn or perhaps, a small wine barrel. So, why not forage a bit around your yard or garden and bring the spirit of the country indoors? It’s a great way to celebrate spring.
