Kvetinári majú o zábavu postarané, pracujú totižto obklopení farbami a vôňami. Jeden by im až závidel. Nie je to však prechádzka ružovou záhradou, toto remeslo je pomerne náročné a vyžaduje si mnoho vedomostí a schopností k tomu, aby bolo vykonávané na úrovni.
Erin Benzakein zo Spojených štátov amerických si toho vypestovala už dosť. Patrí k naozaj skúseným kvetinárkam – floristkám a prostredníctvom fotografii sa o tom rýchlo aj presvedčíte. K tejto práci sa dostala tak, že na pamiatku svojej starej mamy vysadila zopár rastlín, aby na ňu mala spomienky. Akonáhle vykvitli, nadobudla dojem, že starká tam je s ňou. Hneď teda vedela, že našla svoje poslanie. A my môžeme byť len vďační, pretože práca kvetinára a jej kvetiny sú samostatným umeleckým druhom.
This truck, lovingly nicknamed Little Fat Dragon by the kids when they were small, is the heart of the farm. It has been filled with so much over the years: blooms, compost, recycling, side of the road treasures, crates of dahlia tubers, bags of fertilizer, engines that need repair, kids on fourth of July, weeds, garbage, photo shoot supplies…. you name it. This little truck has seen it all. The funniest thing is that when Chris brought it home all those years ago, I started crying because it was so ugly. But he assured me that is was going to be a great farm truck, and he was so right. #farmerflorist #dsfloral
It's been a really long time since I've written anything for the blog. I haven't been intentionally quiet, but in the blur of finishing my book, teaching four workshops and running a farm, that space has sadly taken a backseat. Well, today I finally sat down and wrote an update. If you've been wondering what's been going on around here, then this one's for you. Link in profile. Enjoy! #farmerflorist #floretseeds
Práca kvetinára je úžasná!
For many years I have felt deeply conflicted about Valentine's Day. On one hand, I want consumers to love, appreciate and BUY more flowers. On the other hand, I know that a vast majority of the flowers sold surrounding this holiday are shipped in from faraway lands. Yet, the renaissance taking place in the floral industry right now gives me so much hope that things are finally starting to change. To read more, head over to my blog (link in profile). #farmerflorist #growfloret #dsfloral
I had no idea when I posted photos of our little farm truck filled to the brim last week, that the images would connect with so many. The amount of times the pictures have been reposted and shared is a little mind blowing. I wanted to take a moment and introduce myself to those of you who are new here. Welcome🖐🏼. My name is Erin Benzakein ( pronounced Ben-zo-cane. Yes, like the drug ) and I run a small 2 acre flower farm and seed company with the help of my husband, two children and the amazing ladies of #teamfloret. My first book, Floret Farm's Cut Flower Garden, is going to be published by @chroniclebooks this coming February. There's nothing I love more than sharing the beauty that surrounds me and it's such an honor to have you join me on this wild, flower filled ride. 📷: @copterchris #farmerflorist #flowerfarmer #floretseeds
