Well, it might not be very original, but it's true!
The greatest compliment ever given to me is when a Customer trusts me to deliver flowers on their behalf, to decorate their homes or for those important family occasions.
Flowers are there for the sad times & the glad times, & I know seeking out our locally grown blooms takes a little more thought than simply clicking on the top Google ad.
And when those Customers return for more, it's such a boost to me.
It keeps me going on the days when my back aches, my fingers are cold, the midges are eating me alive or I have to get up ridiculously early.
So a special thank you to the Bridesmaids & Sisters who become Brides themselves & choose to hold my flowers again on their special day.
To the Regular Customers who have enjoyed my flowers often for years, either delivered, collected or bought at the Farmers Market. A lady I met me our very first Farmers Market asked me to take flowers to her mother each month - I'm still doing it all these years later!
All our Customers have been so important in the last few years, enabling us to keep going when our usual sales outlets disappeared overnight. Many have become flower friends along the way & spur me to try new plants, new ways to make the most of the flowers.
What better compliment or encouragement could there ever be?
