Crowned With Love

Teach me, Father, how to go
Softly as the grasses grow;
Hush my soul to meet the shock
Of the wild world as a rock;
But my spirit, propt with power,
Make as simple as a flower.
Let the dry heart fill its cup,
Like a poppy looking up;
Let life lightly wear her crown,
Like a poppy looking down,
When its heart is filled with dew,
And its life begins anew.

Roses Costes Dani Roses

A friend of mine goes to Sweden and Paris twice a year, and he gave me this beautiful picture of a Rose boutique in Paris. Oh ! I would love to visit this shop !I am dying to visit this gorgeous shop, who knows I will be able to meet up with famous celebrities ! I heard that this shop is visited mostly by socialites, celebrities who adores roses .. Yes..only roses.. David Austin roses, garden roses and many more ! Look at the big bloom  !how could a person like me resist it! would love to stare for hours adoring the beauty of it. For me, flowers and colors are one of the best de-stressing agents after GOD and pets. Tee-hee !  Opening one of the monotype flower boutique like this Roses Costes Dani Roses might be interesting, will be able to concentrate more on one type of flowers and look at the colors, I think roses have the most colors among all other flowers. Subtle or strong bold colors are available according to the client’s preference.

Combining different color and types of Roses is very interesting,..

oh this is the video

I do hope that one day if I visit Paris I will be in front of the shop dancing and screaming for joy !

Glorious Iris and Rosa La Campanella

Iris are one gorgeous flowers I adore. Irises are perenial herbs, growing from creeping rhizomes(rhizomatous irises) or, in drier climates, from bulbs. Irises come in many colors such as blue and purple, white and yellow, pink and orange, brown and red, and even black. A purple iris is symbolic of wisdom and compliments. A blue iris symbolizes faith and hope. A yellow iris symbolizes passion while white iris symbolizes purity. A gift of iris can be used to convey many emotions. But oh who cares! they are gorgeous just the way they are :). I personally never engage my own emotions while doing the flowers,  I hold on to the color chart and also the types of the flowers available in Singapore. Iris has a very fragrant smell besides, it died easily in hot weather like Singapore. They are good for bouquets and also vertical table arrangements. This post, I want to concentrate more on the structure bouquet with these beautiful flowers !
