favourite four.

Recently, a friend of mine called me up for a late afternoon coffee. Over coffee and a killer lemon cake we discussed our mutual love for Rex Begonias, then he asked me where I find my floral inspiration. While my number one source of inspiration are my local flower pals and their blooms, I do often have a number of botanical websites on rotation, I thought that I would share some of my favourites with y’all.

Henry Hudson: The Seasonal Bouquet

While it is now just a wonderful reminder that locally grown, seasonal blooms are best, The Seasonal Bouquet was a collaboration between the super sweet Jennie Love from Love ‘n’ Fresh Flowers and the amazing Erin Benzakein from Floret. While both have great blogs of their own, I love the challenge they had given each other and its was a joy to see what both created for the season with materials sourced from their own farms.

The Planthunter is everything I ever wanted in a nerdy botanical friend. Knowledgable, passionate and the right amount of sass. With great weekly botanical stories, how-to guides and profiles, what more could you ever ask for! Each month there is a new theme and great new contributors.

Henry Hudson: Mckenzie Powell

One of my all time favourite sources of inspiration would have to be the work of McKenzie Powell. If florists could have groupies i’m numero uno on McKenzie’s list! (Note: florists can totally can have groupies!) I just love everything about her work, the designs, her material choice, her use of colour and texture…I could go on all day.

Henry Hudson: A Blooming Lovely

I am a very visual person, I always have been. John Manglia’s creation, A Blooming Lovely, instantly caught my attention. John lovingly profiles the floral studios of Sydney, by both interviewing and taking gorgeous photos. John’s pictures paint lovely floral stories and it’s so wonderful to see where people have come from and how that translates into their studio and their work.

I hope that you all find these blogs as amazing and inspirational as I do!
