From my earliest days gardening on the farm with Mom and running through the sunflowers playing hide and seek with my brother, flowers have been my constant companion.
Like a favourite song, a favourite flower can touch a special place in your heart and memory. For me, it’s Freesia. The scent takes me back to childhood summers at Besant, where my friends and I would splash around in the swimming hole for hours and hours.
To this day, I always have fresh flowers at home — and not just when guests come. Flowers are one of the nicest gifts you can give anyone — especially yourself!
Any day is a perfect day for flowers.
It’s been more than 30 years since I turned my passion into my profession and not a day goes by when I’m not grateful.
I’d like to say I picked flowers, but, the truth is, I think flowers picked me.
