Though there is always *something* beautiful available in our great British outdoors to bring inside, we love Spring flowers. Though Winter’s austerity is beautiful, and high Summer’s abundance is so generous, Spring is the moment to really take note of the arrival of those first flowers. When Spring has finally sprung, and those beautiful, delicate bulbs which have pushed their blind little heads through the frosty soil arrive, they are such a welcome addition of delicacy and fragility to the otherwise somewhat weathered foliage around us.
Most Spring bulbs can be forced to bloom early, bringing their beauty (and often delicate scents!) into your home as early as Christmas time – but, if you have your bulbs planted outside, you probably waited until February to see their welcome arrival.
Spring is the perfect season for a wedding – those Spring flowers are rare, with florals still few and far between, compared with the abundance of summer time, and although the weather can be muted, the soft peace of a Spring morning is all the more welcome after bitter, dark wintery days.
At Pollendine’s we take on weddings throughout the year, finding the best of what the British countryside represents in that season – and Spring doesn’t half do us proud! Whether you like the bold and cheery humour of daffs, the heavy scent and colour scheme of hyacinths or the petite delicacy of snowdrops, crocuses and narcissi, Spring really can be a great time to express the beauty of what the Great British outdoors has to offer.
I’m so looking forward to the imminent blooming of my Bridal Crown daffs – much more delicate and elegant, I think, than the vibrancy of their yellow and orange cousins, and the perfect addition to a bridal bouquet.
