Goodbye to autumn

Sadly the beautiful colours of autumn will soon be coming to a close, so we decided to get out and make the most of the gorgeous countryside before the dull days & bare trees of winter set in.

These photographs were taken around one of my favourite places, the Chatsworth estate.
Like most people working in a creative industry & of course like other florists I am influenced by nature & the natural world. Constantly absorbing different colours , textures, materials , it's so easy to be inspired by our gorgeous surrounding, which can then be translated into designs for wedding work, bouquets, sympathy design, anything really! We have a big bag of goodies in our stockroom of collected material, dried bark, nuts, twigs etc that are fabulous items to get creative with back at the shop!
I just love the colours in these images from the weekend..

The nature of Art - Andy Goldsworthy is one of my favourite artists . He works out in the open, using all the kinds of material that we love! Have a look at these...
