Flowers, Flores, Fleurs

 

Gosto mesmo de flores. Surpreendem-me, estimulam-me, animam os meus dias. Mas, mais do que olhar para elas no jardim, gosto de apanhar uma aqui, outra ali, e pô-las em jarras. Tenho-me apercebido de que o processo criativo de fazer arranjos florais é bastante parecido com o da costura: pegando em elementos isolados e combinando cores e formas, chega-se a um resultado esteticamente agradável.
I’m really fond of flowers. They surprise me, they stimulate me, they brighten up my days. But much more that looking at them in the garden, I like picking one here and another one there and placing them in vases. I find the creative process of arranging flowers very similar to sewing: by taking individual elements and combining shapes and colours one achieves a result that’s esthetically pleasing.
