Sleeping Beauty – Blossom and Tulip Arrangement

with Chrysanthemums and Eriostomen

By far the most scrumptious reminder that Spring is around the corner is seeing bare branches push out unassuming little buds and bursting into blossom. After a cold, hard winter taking the time to rest and build our energy stores (or spare tyres), there is new life, new colour and beautiful things on the way. Something we can all relate to, no?

So if you’ve had a dull, challenging or lonely week, take heart in the bursting joy that’s this week’s box. Your branches might look twiggy,and your eriostomen may by in bud, but they hint at the year’s best beauty to come.

With delicate stems in your box this week, start your arrangement with the woody blossom twigs and greenery, sliding in your tulips gently right at the end. After their slumber they may take a few days to wake up, but good things come to those who wait.
