Taylor&Porter_LaBelleEpoque_177Since doing flowers every year has proven to be more wonderful than the last. This year is no exception. About a year ago Becca from The Garden Gate Flower Company reached out to me about possibly coming out to teach with them at their workshop in Cornwall. I nearly leaped off my seat and screamed I was so excited. We love traveling, and to combine traveling with teaching seemed like the perfect merriment. Upon meeting Becca and Maz it was like friends at first sight. We enjoyed many meals together, shared loads of laughs, and I really enjoyed teaching alongside them. They have such a beautiful way of combining their flowers, and to know they grow them themselves makes you love them even more. Each stem feels extra special knowing exactly where it came from. Each and every student was lovely, and I miss England all the time. We are already talking about heading back next year, and sharing a few more meals with Becca and Maz.
