I hope you had a great weekend.
As well as a lovely walk in the sunshine yesterday, we had friends staying and went to see the musical Wicked, which was wonderful…
So, what have we in store for Flowerona today?
Well, I’m featuring photos from a private view of the new Floriculture exhibition at the Garden Museum in London, which I attended last Thursday evening.
I’m starting off with images of the amazing floral installation there, created by Rebecca Louise Law.
Created using more than 3,500 blooms which had been hand-wired and were suspended on copper, the installation will remain in situ at the museum until February 28th.
It was truly breath-taking! So do try and visit the exhibition whilst it’s still there.
Below is a picture of Rebecca with her husband, together with more images of her floral creation…
During the evening, speeches were given by the museum’s Chairman Mark Fane, Director Christopher Woodward (pictured below) and Sue Steptoe (Buying Manager Horticulture) from Waitrose who are the lead sponsors.
Staff from the museum were wearing beautiful botanical headdresses…
He will be giving a talk about his work and inspirations on March 12th, which I’m really looking forward to attending.
I had a brief chance to look around the exhibition whilst I was there.
But I plan to visit again to read through it more thoroughly and also to spend more time looking at the beautiful photographs of UK growers captured by Howard Sooley.
So, if you’re interested in floriculture and would like to learn more about the cut flower trade from the 17th century until today, do visit Floriculture which is open until April 28th.
