Shane Connolly, internationally renowned and Royal floral designer, spent a year selecting plants and flowers to inspire everyday living using over sixty arrangements in this book. His imaginative use of growing plants, shrubs and trees is inspired by the changing seasons, and his selections are guided by what is available locally and in the wild. His dedication to what is sustainable and recyclable, to what can be replanted outside and enjoyed later, radiates from every page. Beautifully photographed by Jason Lowe, the book is a visual feast of colour and creativity, yet remains faithful to what is affordable and what can be enjoyed at home. All the arrangements, including a big celebratory event for each season, are exquisitely simple and easy to achieve.
