Leading with lemon...

Tulip season is always a little fustrating.  You can't stagger their flowering and no matter whether they say 'early' or 'late' flowering they seem to arrive when they want too.  It makes for tough planning if you are a flower farmer florist...or whatever we call ourselves!!!  

We can't imagine not growing them and only hope that next year we have a bumper crop of April brides to enjoy them...hint hint brides out there planning their wedding!!!!  

But with our Little Flower School Floral Immersion course fast approaching and coinsiding with the excess tulip stock this has given us a great excuse to dust off the winter cobwebs and get practising.  

Lemon tulips seemed to scream out to be picked with tangerine rannunclus and lush green foliage like the scented geranium leaves  - creating a really fresh bouquet to welcome in the better weather.

Love the single white rannunclus at the moment - they remind me of cosmos purity!

When given just a colour preference by a client it means having the ability to pick the best in the garden on the day - today I loved being my own client!
