We put together a little shoot inspired by the Pantone colours of the year… Who knew Little Triffids HQ was just that shade of serenity?! An ombre bouquet in a more formal shape but with the wild and whimsical touches that make it quintessentially LT.

And we’re off! The first week of Summer Subscriptions has begun! I’ve resolved never to take a christmas holiday away from the garden for so long again as I worried and missed it too much! But phew! My babies made it through (thanks to some diligent house/garden/dog/chook-sitters) and the Summer season is away on time. … Continue reading Summer Subscription!
I created four of these arrangements for an anniversary dinner recently. The client requested green and something a bit different. Why! That’s my speciality! * Rose, agapanthus, daisy, buddleia, plum branches, hydrangea, fern, spinach seed, carrot flowers, lambs ears, lemon balm, magnolia leaves.
A special ‘Get Well’ bouquet… a cottage garden feel was requested and I said: You’ve come to the right place! * hydrangea, buddleia, cosmos, lambs ears, daccus, roses, daisy, sea holly, agapanthus, hollyhock, agastache, madonna lily.
