Pick of the Bunch: Spring Florals

It was wonderful to see the first of the tulips, irises and crocuses peeking out of the flower beds this morning. I love how they store themselves away through the winter and shoot out full of life in the spring. So in the spirit of new life, I've picked out a selection of gorgeous spring flowers...



from the mottled parrot tulips...



ruffled skirts of lisianthus, hellebore and sweet pea...



hot and vibrant purple anemones and yellow poppies...



to the sweet, billowy plumes of ranunculus. My favourite spring flower, this beauty doubles up as a rose and peony offering you a pleasing array of shades and all the glory. 



Bring the scent of spring into your flowers with fresh herbs-rosemary is a wonderful addition if you can find it, as is lavender although this is more of an early summer herb. Opt for a hand tied bouquet with embroidered ribbon. Perfect!
