One of our lovely flower subscribers in Seattle sent me this yesterday and I just had to share it here.
Everything about this video is absolutely stunning. From the tiny glimpses into these little flower farms, their hard working owners and the beautiful flowers that they grow all the way through to the narrators haunting words and profound message. I adore every ounce of it!
If you are in need of a little more inspiration, here are a few links to lose yourself in today:
Honey and Poppies beautiful blog, Ghosty Dreams and Flower Things.
I love everything about Saidos da Concha, especially this beautiful post.
Overlooking Mississippi, an all around beautiful blog.
Small Stump + Studio Choo’s beautiful poppy photos.I cannot wait until ours bloom!
Floret Flowers on
So glad you all enjoyed the video!
I too am saddened by the possible gloomy fate of the flower growers in Britain. Here in the states I have seen this same situation due to cheap imports flooding the market and driving prices into the ground. As a local grower it is impossible to compete on price but… we can kick major ass with quality, freshness, customer service and selection!
Don’t forget, we all have a say how it turns out! Buy local and vote with your dollar :) If you are a floral designer or flower lover looking for local product, be sure to visit the ASCFG's website wwww.ascfg.org to find a grower in your area or email me erinbenz_at_msn_dot_com and I'll connect you with farm fresh blooms.
