FDS Spring Newsletter!

Welcome to the Spring Addition of the Flower Design School Newsletter

 

Dear Blossoms,

We just want to say one thing – Hurray for Spring!

I’m sure just like you you’ve had enough of the cold, wet and windy weather we’ve been experiencing in Perth the last couple of weeks and months. Whilst its great for the plants and our dams I have so missed visiting our glorious beaches and NOT shivering in bed!

Lucky for us it looks like the sun is back out and it’s a simply wonderful time to get out and about, perhaps do some spring cleaning and of course, do some more floristry!

If that tickles your fancy please read on 🙂

Flower of the Month: Irises

irisesIrises go back to ancient times in Egypt where they were immortalised in drawings as symbols of the renewal of life. This lovely flower is named after the Greek messenger of the gods, Iris, who was said to have golden wings and to travel on a rainbow. “Iris” means “rainbow” in Greek, fittingly representing the many colours of the iris flower.

Where the Story Begins …

The worldwide success story of the iris probably began in 1479 B.C., when King Thutmose III of Egypt had conquered Syria, where Irises grew in great profusion. Thutmose immortalized Irises in sculptures at the Temple of Amon at Karnak, as well as in the gardens of Egypt. That is where their story begins.

DID YOU KNOW? 

The word for Iris comes from the Greek word meaning “rainbow”.
