After the celebration of All Hallows Eve, the first day of November is one for remembering the dearly departed with the festivals of the Mexican Day of the Dead and All Souls’ Day and with this in mind, I designed a unique teardrop tribute of flowers for display inside the design room of one of my favourite flower shops.
After the austerity of Lent, Easter ALWAYS calls for something a little special in the way of floral design and my plans for the 12th scale church in the Parish of St M’s one year were NO exception!
Having gone to the trouble of creating a feast of tasty goulash in polymer clay for the less fortunate of the parish on Homeless Sunday – I was also determined to put THOSE mice to work that day…
Although the doors to my little flower shop have been closed as of late – my floral endeavours have been continuing albeit in more of a fantastical way as I’ve been busy creating some plants which would struggle to find a definition in any botanical guide.
On an incredible and much more summery day MANY years ago, the world was ‘lost’ in a sea of enthusiastic flag waving, military parades, dubious hats, the soaring strains of Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance, swathes of ivory taffeta and unbridled patriotic fever to celebrate the wedding of the Prince of Wales to the Lady Diana Spencer.
