Floret Farm's Cut Flower Garden
I cannot remember how I learned of Erin from Floret Flowers but she's been on my radar for a long, long time. I love her beautiful flowers but more than that, I love how she so freely shares her knowledge of everything flower related on her blog. And her knowledge is vast and deep.
She's an inspiration to me for sure and I looked forward to the release of her new book, Floret Farm's Cut Flower Garden: Grow, Harvest, and Arrange Stunning Seasonal Blooms, with much anticipation. You guys, it's so, so good. The pictures are gorgeous and it tells you everything you need to know about flowers- whether it be for your home garden or a commercial endeavor. If you love flowers, this is a must read. I can only imagine that I will keep coming back to this book time and time again.
The runaway success of her book, it's in its fourth printing and sold out on many sites, speaks to the power of flowers. It's so easy to dismiss flowers as frivolous or a luxury but I would argue that they bring much needed beauty and joy into today's world! Thank you to Erin for reminding us all in such a beautiful, approachable and generous way.
