Foraged Flora: Found and Foraged Arrangements for Every Season

Author: Louesa Roebuck
$69.95(AUD)  inc GST

A gorgeously photographed new take on flower arranging using local and foraged plants and flowers to create beautiful arrangements, with ideas and inspiration for the whole year. Roadside fennel, flowering fruit trees, garden roses, tiny violets; ingredients both common and unusual, humble and showy, "Foraged Flora" is a new vision for flowers and arranging. It encourages you to train your eye to the beauty that surrounds you, attune your senses to the seasonality and locality of flowers and plants, and to embrace the beauty in each stage of life, from first bud to withering seedpod. Organized by month, each chapter in this visually arresting and inspiring book focuses on large and small arrangements created from the flowers and plants available during that time period and in that place, all foraged or gleaned nearby. The authors reflect on surprising and beautiful pairings, the importance of scale, the scarcity or abundance of raw materials, and the environmental factors that contribute to that availability. Whether picking a small tendril of fragrant jasmine, collecting oversized branches of flowering quince, or making a garland of bay laurel, "Foraged Flora" is an invitation to seek out the beauty of the natural world."

Louesa is an incredible and singular talent. She has the powerful ability to gather and assemble plants into living sculpture. The astonishing thing about Foraged Flora is that it so perfectly translates her transitory work in permanent printed form. Flipping through its pages you will get her vibe instantly, and be transported to another place. Todd Selby, author of Edible Selby and The Selby is in Your Place"
