constance spry love

I just finished reading Sue Shephards The Surprising Life of Constance Spry. A floral genius of her time and a huge inspiration in my time. Just when you thought you were really cutting edge and 'contempory' Connie Spry probably beat you to it sixty or eighty years ago.

“Do whatever you please, follow your own star; be original if you want to be and don’t if you don’t want to be. Just be natural and gay and light-hearted and pretty and simple and overflowing and general and baroque and bare and austere and stylised and wild and daring and conservative, and learn and learn and learn. Open your mind to every form of beauty.” Constance Spry
