- THE SCHOOL OF SUSTAINABLE FLORISTRY
The late afternoon sun was slanting across the field, cutting across plots filled with late summer flowers, a pond and a few sheep meandering behind a polytunnel filled with roses. Paula handed me a bucket of freshly cut flowers in a muted burnt orange and burgundy palette filled with voluptuous dahlias and roses, delicate, dancing coreopsis and a mixture of seed heads and grasses full of texture. And I knew. This was what had been missing. The thing that I hadn’t been able to put my finger on when I was trying to create the kind of untamed floral designs that I was drawn to.
