Bringing joy and beauty to Haringey

I wanted to create a Spring meadow with this design.

These flowers were a joy to work with.

Celebrating Arsenal’s win on Thursday night Reece decided to make his design in their colours

To all the mothers, stepmothers, foster mothers and carers - Happy Mothers Day.

The sunshine was out this morning and the flowers were tropical - summer’s just round the corner.

I love this combination of orchids and twisted Salix.

First outing for the teapot in 2018.

I love these 2 arrangements - a tropical touch in freezing January

After a week’s break for Christmas and New Year The Flower Bank began sessions with Young Offenders again today. Some great work was produced and I really enjoyed working with this young person - he understood instinctively about working with the shape of the Flower stems and foliage’s shape.

On Wednesday I spent an hour or so with residents at the Meadows - although all the residents have dementia we were able to produce this lovely Christmas design.

The young people are becoming more confident with colour and shape and experimenting. It’s amazing what they can produce after just 2 sessions.

For someone who knew nothing about Flowers the young person this morning understood repetition and colour very quickly. He was a great student and enjoyed himself in the end.

I had forgotten how much I loved the low coffee table design. There’s something about the geometry of this design which make it looks so good.

This final design was a joint effort by both young people - their collaboration was well received by its recipient Lady Sarah Cohen House.

The young person who worked on this design has got a great eye for colour and shape.
