Shop Local

I'm a great believer in supporting local shops and industries.  Now spring is here, it's a delight to have The Blue Lavender so close by in Barnes Village: there's always a fabulous selection of seasonal flowers inside (see below) and out.  Over the years, especially whilst choosing flowers for shoots, I've become particularly keen on florists who a) show an innovative range and b) know their stuff about flowers.  Sometimes, I'll go for just a couple of stems: blossom and leafy twigs can be as effective as a giant bunch.
