I have an eleven year old daughter who will find a bouquet's worth of flowers in a dry field. She knows the names of all our local wildflowers, and will do anything to help out in my friends florist shop. She even had her own flower garden in the front yard for a while, but just couldn't remember to water it. She prefers to forage.
She studies the Sunset's Western Garden Book and our local wildflower field guide like it's her job.
When I saw "The Flower Workshop" by Ariella Chezar, I knew my flower lover would be intrigued. The photographs are stunning. And Ariella's loose organic style, using foraged materials and home grown blooms is right in line with my daughter's idea of a dream bouquet.
From gorgeous photos, to flower identification, to specific seasonal how-to's, this book is perfect for the casual flower admirer to a more seasoned flower artist.
Another beautiful flower book my daughter has in her growing collection is "The Flower Recipe Book" by Alethea Harampolis. Again, beautiful, inspiring photos, with step by step directions to create lovely bouquets.
With a growing collection of resources, my little flower lover is gradually educating herself in all things floral! And what a blessing to have such beautiful resources to choose from.
I received "The Flower Workshop" book from Blogging for Books for this review. This blog post does contain affiliate links, if you choose to purchase, a bit comes back my way at no additional cost to you. I appreciate your support in this way.
