I just love seeing the new blooms that Spring brings, and it’s particularly lovely hearing the birds chirping (albeit earlier) in the mornings outside our window. What a fabulous season! I’ll be watching excitedly to see what bouquets are in demand this wedding season, as there is so much to choose from, and so many new combinations heading our way. Have you got your bouquet and florals sorted? What are your blooms of choice?
