Orange with Everything

My house is not decorated with orange and I don't wear orange clothes but I love orange flowers! I can't count the number of times I have heard "colourful but no orange" or "I don't think orange will match with that" all I can say is try it.

Think Pink

I was just looking in our fridge and admiring our selection of beautiful pink flowers. Pink is one of my guilty pleasures. I would never describe myself as a "pink person" but I love pink flowers and in the summer the variety of pink flowers is lovely and tempting. I was surprised to learn that the colour pink was named after a flower that we happen to have in the store. I had assumed that the flowers were called pinks because of their colour but in fact it's the opposite, the colour got its name from the flower.?The etemology of the word pink according to wikipedia is as follows

Heart Hoyas!

When I think of hoya I think of my mum's sunny kitchen. Her plant drapped itself all over the cupboards reaching for the window, occasionally filling the room with its sweet scent. That's why I smilled when I saw the hoya hearts we recieved at the store. They look like a small green heart planted in earth and we have been told they will sprout a small root and leaves in no time.

The Green is Coming

At long last it feels like spring is coming, although it is a bit early to start planting outside it is a great time to introduce some new green plants to your home or office. I always find that some glossy green foliage gets me in the mood for the gardening to come.

The Art of the Hand Tied Bouquet

Hand tied bouquets are my favorite to make, give and of course to receive. These bouquets are a selection of flowers that have been chosen and arranged so that the recipient can easily drop them into a vase. I love making hand tied bouquets because I find they are a great way to play with colors and textures.
