Dried flowers are back - and it's time you jumped on the bandwagon
20/04/2017
Dried flowers, you either love them or loathe them. After a period of popularity in the 1990s, dried florals earned a reputation of being fusty and outdated - that is until the Instagram generation selected them as their flower arrangement of choice.  Having found the flower wastage from the weddings she styled upsetting, florist Antonia De Vere of Markantonia started to experiment with drying the leftover florals.

Bluebell flowers decorate Belgian forest floor
20/04/2017
BRUSSELS, April 19 (Reuters) - Each spring, the ground of the forest Hallerbos trades in its brown and green hues for vibrant blue, when a burst of bluebell flowers bloom. The bluebells are at their height in mid-April, but the fervent bloom lasts only seven to 10 days. Afterwards, leaves emerge in the beech trees above, blocking sunlight from reaching the flowers below. Visitors then have to wait another year to catch a glimpse of these wild flowers. The protected forest, located south of Brussels near the town of Halle, draws locals and tourists to witness a landscape that looks plucked from a fairy tale. Local student Violette Yernaux came for her first time to see the flowers, walk through nature and relax. "They are all together like a carpet. It's so pretty," Yernaux said.

Flowers of Easter
17/04/2017
Easter is one of the most important and popular Christian holidays. It is observed to commemorate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, three days after he was tortured to death. Easter falls on the last day of the lent season. Lent is a long period of celebration that starts from Shrove Tuesday; or Mardi Gras, the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday which means ‘Fat Tuesday’ because it is the last day where you can eat everything before Lent and ends with Easter. One of the holiest festivals among Christians, Easter is celebrated across the globe with great fun and fervor. Special Church services are organized across various countries over the entire Easter season. The holy occasion is welcomed with the same feelings, gusto and enthusiasm.

Why bunches of flowers were left for people to find in Mirfield on Easter Sunday
17/04/2017
A mum was all smiles after her son found a “lonely bouquet” left as a random gesture of kindness by a Mirfield florist.

Sara Crawford couldn’t believe it when 12-year-old Charlie came home with the flowers with a note attached wishing them a happy Easter.

The bouquet – along with another – had been left in Mirfield by Cate Wood, who runs town centre florist Flowers at 180.

Cate said: “It’s something called ‘lonely bouquet’ where you leave flowers outside for someone to find. You attach a card and ask whoever finds them to pass them onto someone they love or who needs cheering up.”
