Every day we are left with too hard flowers , either their stems have broken , they are miss-matched left overs from arrangements or they are beginning to open too much to sell at the full price……….
…..and so we make them into pot luck posies. No two are exactly alike and they make the perfect sweet floral gift when too much would be …..well, too much.
According to Greek mythology the beautiful river nymph Daphne, fleeing from the passionate pursuit of amorous Apollo, cried out to her mother Gaia for rescue and was swallowed up into the ground leaving only a small fragrant tree in her place.
If you are not familiar with the gorgeous fragrance of daphne you must come to Tribal Rose in the next couple of weeks while it is in season and sniff it for yourself…. It’s heavenly!
Sprouting coconuts caused quite a stir from our window this weekend; inspiring dreams of South Pacific destinations…
This Winter bride wanted to embrace the season and chose a rich wintery palette for her bouquet.
Gorgeous purple kale and velvety burgundy cymbidiums combined with deep blue hyacinths, red freesia and red berries.
The theme was carried through to the boys’ buttonholes and the bride’s hairpiece.
That’s Sacha modelling her beautiful handiwork.
