Workshops/ classes/ restorative retreats...

call them what you will, they are what I love to do

 

From our small corner of Yorkshire, with a garden full of flowers and foliage, and with a familiar grey-green backdrop of fields and dry stone walls that have been “built to last”, I have taught many people my way of “doing the flowers” and encouraged them to pursue their own dreams and their own way with flowers.

Deep Winter

January and February are months
in which to snuggle down.

If you grow flowers it’s the one time of year where, without guilt, you can sit by the fire, in your warmest socks, maybe with the blanket and just read. Books, seed catalogues, magazines. Just read. Maybe make a note or two. But above all else take it easy.

You might need to make something ‘floral’ and this is the time where you can get out all the dried flowers and grasses from the shed. Just watch the way they move and place them where they’ll catch the light the best.

If you have any winter vegetables in the garden and are craving some ‘life’ inside the house, then look for pieces of broccoli or kale leaves. And, as we get to February, the first tiny crocus in a bud vase or a honey-scented snowdrop will be enough to make you think of spring and all that’s to come in this brand-new year.
