Beloved Flower Lover,
It’s an autumn morning and we turn on the computer. We see a comment bubble and biting our lips in anticipation we read the message posted to us. Our eyes scan the words. We work out what is being said. Absorbed and mesmerised by what we see, it becomes clearer and clearer. We suddenly realise what was being intended. Wow, wow, wow….. our faces broke out into laughter and our shoulders drop in relief…we returned to smiles.
We are very happy to announce that The London Flower Lover has been nominated for another award. This time it’s the Liebster Award and it was nominated by http://smukkecirsten.wordpress.com/.
The German word “liebster” has several definitions: dearest, sweetest, kindest, nicest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, welcome, sweetheart and boyfriend!
We are very happy to say we accept the nomination, so thank you http://smukkecirsten.wordpress.com/ for nominating The London Flower Lover.
We love how she is using her creative imagination there to bring things into form. We adore how she engages the energies of the imagination and takes us on stories that she writes that are allow us to powerfully absorb the range of energies of life. The contrasts, the sameness, the same but different. Her writing keeps our eyes open. We never know what to expect from her and so are always open to the variety of energies she plays with in her writings. From mundane home life, to far reaching action stories. Difficulties, ease, struggle, achievement. We welcome her look on life. She plants great seeds of excitement that erupt in our hearts. We love that space!

Our eleven nominations are:
We are extremely glad to be able to nominate the folk we have. It’s an honour to be able to do so. For many reasons . However, the reason that we are going to share with you today is that we also know that we stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before us. Those who have showed us how to use floristry for the betterment of the hearts of women and men all around us. We give thanks for them helping us to recognise who we really are. Our true identity so we can actually grow in the truth, confidently and creatively. As a result we have been able to stand very clearly in that knowing, rather than promoting a vague vision of the purpose of floristry for us. We give thanks for this recognition as it acknowledged for us all those who have helped us to articulate the difference that makes the difference. Each award, each person, each acknowledgement from these people who have helped us to stretch ourselves. That means to go beyond our own comfort zones and use our heart energies in a way that is beautiful, harmonious, loving and happy.
Sharing the best with you…
