You will probably call me a fool, posting about a flower shop before I post about the gardens and places I visited in England, but this flower shop was far from ordinary. I simply had to share it with you first.
While walking through The Lanes in Brighton, some beautifully arranged spring bouquets caught the attention of me and my friends. What struck us most was the the use of seasonal wild flowers and classic and timeless blooms, like roses, peonies and lilacs. All loosely arranged in vases, modern or antique or in a simple enamel cup. Much thought was given to the colour palette.
While searching the internet later, I found out that the shop owners are two London florists, who managed the flower shop at Liberty's. Well, that makes sense!!
While oohing and aahing outside, the friendly shop owner asked us in to have a look. We were amazed. Although tiny, the flower shop had lots of atmosphere. There were beautiful antique pieces on display, from small vases and jugs to one off pieces of furniture.
When in Brighton, do visit. You can find Quince on 2 Nile Street.
Before I am off to the kitchen preparing Rhubarb pie for tomorrow, I would like to thank you for your kind comments on my last post. I enjoyed reading which spring flowers are your favourites. Please excuse me for not leaving many comments myself this week, but the attraction of the garden is too strong to resist. How I cherish the beautiful weather we are having in Holland at the moment :-)!
Wish you all a wonderful weekend! Enjoy the sun wherever you are.
