people say this, but when they do panic sets in. What does this mean? I have dark visions of parallel arrangements of liatris, bended steel grass and anthuriums. All very well if you like that sort of thing, but I do not, and nor do I have those types of flowers or the posy pad of oasis needed to do it in. (is that what you do it in? let's not forget I have no qualifications in floristry)
Then it starts.....the self doubt, perhaps we should be doing this sort of thing? Should we appeal to a broader market, not everybody likes old marmalade jars filled with flowers and herbs do they? Should we have paid more attention to the nice relay man that called in this morning? Is it bad that I have no idea what a massing Xanth is, and have never made a letter or a gates of heaven or an empty chair?
Then I (artfully) tie together 10 stems of that mottled hydrangea, wrap it in grey tissue paper and tie a big bow on it, the customer is bowled over and the self doubt passes.....until the next time.
