Spring is in the air, which means it’s bloomin’ flower season!
I can’t begin to tell you how much flowers brighten my day; especially during the cold, dark, winter months where a bunch of flowers on my windowsill would bring the place to life.
I’m always visiting a local florist or ordering a bunch of flowers from one as it feels like a special treat to me, from me and it’s astonishing how many independent florist businesses we have here in Northamptonshire.
I love going with the seasons too, for example; tulips and daffodils in the spring, roses in the summer and sunflowers in the autumn… whatever the season, I have a bunch of flowers somewhere in my house.
So this is a Navigating Northants guide I have been DYING to write for ages and I’m so pleased to share a love of independent and flowers with you!
Plus, there’s always a reason and occasion where you need to buy flowers! Especially with occasions like Mothers’ Day coming up!
So here is a guide to some fabulous independent florists based in Northamptonshire and where you can buy your flowers from – I can’t wait to navigate to more around the county, so let me know which one’s I should visit next!
