My Instagram feed is filled with flowers - in flatlays, styled shoots, bouquets and fashion prints (so many double taps) so it was natural that I add illustrations to this category. Floral love is universal and historical - Van Gogh, anyone? My personal favourites are (but by no means limited to) sunflowers and lilies because they remind me of the special people who gift them to me, and the happiness they represent. As a regular attendee of local markets, I love seeing the big bunches of hydrangeas, baby’s breaths, sunflowers, roses in tin buckets - not to mention the heavenly scent as you walk past!
I think there are flowers that will lift and suit any occasion - so when you attend a dinner party and hear “don’t bring a thing” - don’t bring Favourites chocolates, but a bunch of blooms!
