Valentines Day tomorrow !
I love being a Florist ! The chance to be creative every day, there is so much satisfaction in putting a new design together and combining the colour pallet with flowers, friends think I should paint, but I get all my enjoyment creating bouquets. The only downside is all the cold water, dirty buckets and cold feet !
I must admit I find it very difficult in the Supermarket, watching people select Bouquets of flowers. Tonight in Sainsbury’s there were lots of people buying last minute Valentine’s Day Cards and Bouquets of flowers. I would really like to approach them and point out the advantages of buying local !
The quality of the flowers being sold is nothing compared to the selection I have at the workshop, there is just no comparison – but how can I educate everyone into looking for the difference ?
The heads of the Grand prix roses that I have in stock are about 4 times larger than the supermarket ones and are in great condition, the supermarket flowers just look dull and sad !
Luckily they wouldn’t sell something like this in the Supermarket – 24 Grand Prix Red Roses with Diamonte detail, all handtied and presented in a recycled cardboard vase ! Lucky Girl !
We have quite a full diary for tomorrow with deliveries scheduled between Felpham and Wittering ! I am lucky enough to have two very capabable drivers on hand ! Tony and Jan will be on the road for as long as it needs, but we will miss having Lou - to give directions and Morgan to drive too – please make Valentines Day fall during half term next year !
