Flirt with Flowers

It’s easy to get wrapped up in work and become a bit oblivious to the world around us. I had one of those moments when a colleague (Nick from Country Gardens magazine) mentioned he had a fun idea for a blog post: Flirting with flowers. I’d forgotten Valentine’s Day is this week, but Nick’s idea is totally worth sharing!

Why not send your sweetheart a message using the language of flowers:

Want to tell them how magical they make you feel? Include ferns in the bouquet; they represent magic and fascination.

Let them know they’re your true love by dropping in some forget-me-not flowers.

Show them you have faith in them (or appreciate their faith in you!) with beautiful iris blooms.
