Buttonholes, corsages and all that jazz

You might wonder why a florist would begin her first blog post with buttonholes and corsages- the smallest and probably, you're thinking, the most insignificant part of her work.  In answer there's actually something immeasurably satisfying about making these tiny flowery creations, it must be all that wiring and silky wisps of ribbon.  Not to mention lovely pins- a good haberdashery is every florist's friend.  Of course we have the usual suspect the thistle (or what passes for a thistle) as we're in Scotland.  Inevitable really but don't hold that against it, poor thing.
