FF Brain Floss

Houston – we have a problem! Since the arrival of our young cat, Mr Ben, I have to admit that I haven’t had any flowers in our home. I did bring home my wonderful tulips this time last year but those were quickly munched by Mr Ben and his late brother. So I reluctantly decided not to bring any more flowers home.

However, there is one time of year when it is just not possible for me to be without flowers and that’s Christmas. I always have flowers here at Christmas and, I admit, I always have the same flowers – Amaryllis, Hyacinths and my beloved red Roses. The other introduction into Mr Ben’s world was our rather large, fresh Christmas tree. We wondered what would happen next.

Mr Ben has a love of exploring heights. He jumps up onto the top of the wardrobe only to launch himself onto our bed – normally when I am half asleep. Yes – you’ve guessed it – this happens on my side of the bed. His other high moments are on top of our French dressers or even the top of doors! He sometimes gets stuck on the door or at least becomes frightened by his own bold behaviour. So having a tree in our lounge would appear to be too good to be true in terms of exploration. Add to this the fact that the central trunk of said tree was as squint as you can possibly imagine. It took masses of magazines to prop it up!

About Fusion Flowers

Welcome to Issue 88 of Fusion Flowers magazine which features some of the winning designs in the annual Fusion Flowers magazine International Designer of the Year competition. In fact, the front cover by Harijanto Setiawan of an underwater idea won a Platinum award! We have lots of gorgeous tutorials for you including fresh and new bouquets for Valentine’s Day or even for bridal designs. Find out more about an Even Design workshop in America that saw participants decorating a number of venues to the highest level organised by Tomas De Bruyne and Hitomi Gilliam. Elly Lin demonstrated at the Fleurop-Interflora World Cup in Berlin and our report features a number of her amazing designs. From Japan we report on the Huis ten Bosch floral design competitions which drew huge crowds and attracted some really exciting designers. Lisianthus are normally used for mixed bouquets but in our report from Russia we see how they can be used to create glamorous evening arrangements with the WOW factor! We also take a look at some of the winning designs at the most recent NAFAS National Show in Blackpool and focus on some of the work created on our own stand by Brigitte Heinrichs and Joseph Massie too. It’s a packed issue so why not give a gift subscription of Fusion Flowers magazine to someone you care about.
