One of the best things about my job is the incredibly interesting and amazing people I get to meet along the way. We were lucky enough to be invited down to The Real Flower company farm in Petersfield to seek inspiration from their beautiful roses and flowers.
Both Leanna, my sales Manager and I love flowers. As you may know, my most recent collection of watercolours was inspired by the tropical flowers I encountered on a trip to Taiwan at the beginning of this year.
When we arrived we were greeted by Rosebie Morton – an inspirational woman who’s probably the best rose grower in the UK! To be invited down to enjoy an afternoon with Rosebie was a real treat. We experienced wonderful explanations about each of the flowers. Learning about the process of growing each plant and flower was eye-opening and inspirational for us.
What struck me the most about this amazing place was how natural yet distinctive all the flowers were. They were all so exquisite in beauty yet completely unique and individual. It was almost as if each of the flowers had a personality of its own and one could really sense that when walking through the farm!
