Scents of Christmas
I grew up surrounded by flowers on a nursery in beautiful Cheshire UK . My father Derek Hayes, a horticulturalist through and through started his dream of a nursery/garden centre in 1956.After many years of landscape gardening and growing acres of flowers and plants a florist shop evolved. As a very artistic and self taught florist my father taught me as a child that to create something beautiful out of flowers was an art indeed and why create something mundane when with a little bit of thought,effort and imagination you can create magic.
What could be nicer than a house filled with scents and colours of Christmas fresh flowers and foliage !A welcoming wreath of scented pine and scented fresh flowers on the door to welcome your guests.Garlands on staircases and mantelpieces full of dried fruits and cinnamon fill your senses with Christmas memories for many years to come .I only have to smell a scented rose and it takes me back to my childhood of a rose garden outside our kitchen window filling the house with their heady perfume .I would fill every room with scented fresh flowers and beautiful fresh foliages quite often as beautiful as the flowers themselves !My birthday is 2 weeks before Christmas and i always feel so thoroughly spoilt in December ! Welcome to my house of flowers Acer Florist Cheshire every girls dream !
