The Fiery Circus Roses.

Today’s inspiration hails all the way from Vancouver’s Granville Island and although I’m not a big fan of roses, these red rimmed yellow orange roses have managed to capture my heart. Commonly known as circus roses, the vibrant colours add a touch of energy to the flowers that are usually regarded as classic and elegant. Fiery on its own, the circus roses are also versatile in that they can be matched with other florals. Roses don’t always have to be red.

Bloomin' Tulip.

It’s spring time and even though the weather today may be a tad depressing, that doesn’t stop us from thinking and looking pretty. It’s that time of the year when spring flowers start blooming, providing you lucky ladies with plenty of floral choices. How about the ever-elegant tulips? You can mix & match different colours, go monochromatic or if simple is the key, stick with one colour.
