Claude Monet’s Gardens in Giverny, France

The House and Gardens of Claude Monet is the beautifully restored home of the painter Claude Monet, the founder of French Impressionist Painting. Claude Monet’s garden at Giverny is probably the most famous garden in France with over 500,000 visitors annually. Monet painted some of his most famous paintings while living at Giverny, these included his water lily and Japanese bridge pieces. Claude Monet lived in Giverny from 1883 until his death in 1926.
This is a garden I’ve wanted to visit for quite some time and am quite pleased we made the day trip out to the countryside, an easy one hour drive from Paris. If you love gardens be sure to add this one to your list of ones to visit!

Tips when working with Gladiolas with Alison Ellis

Hey Floralpreneurs! Welcome to July. If you’re in the midst of a busy season like most florists I know, I’m sharing a super short, quick tip with you today. Well, actually, it’s 2 tips!…2 tips on gladiolas to be specific.
I LOVE gladiolas. I know they have a reputation for being “funeral flowers”, but that’s just because they’re so useful for their height! They have a beautiful bloom, come in wonderful colors, and can be fantastic in wedding work. (They’re also beautiful in the garden to boot!)

Today’s video has 2 gladiola tips: first, how to get the blooms to open more quickly and then, how to wire a gladiola for a bouquet or hair flower. I particularly like gladiolas in bouquets. The next time you need a “coral” flower for a bouquet, consider a gladiola!

I hope you’ll take a few minutes to watch! As always, keep doing beautiful work!…and I’ll see you here on flirtyfleurs.com next month with another fresh post.
xo, Alison

P.S. This quick tip is part of my online training, How To Start A Floral Design Business, and you can get the FREE course here: https://realflowerbusiness.com/startup
