Florist or Artist?

Navigating the land between Florist and Artist.

In the quiet moments between holiday festivities, I found myself entangled in the enchanting world of flower art. The air was filled with the fragrance of creativity, and my mind blossomed with ideas as I delved into planning and sketching designs that would soon bring vibrant blooms to life. What began as a mere exploration into new methods of drying flowers soon evolved into a family affair, with everyone enthusiastically tending to the burgeoning beds in our garden.

As I stand amidst the petals, I can't help but reflect on the evolving nature of my passion. The question that now lingers in my mind is whether I should label myself a florist or an artist, for it seems the lines between the two have blurred, creating a harmonious fusion.

In the midst of this creative metamorphosis, I've come to realize that the term "florist" may no longer encapsulate the breadth of my artistic pursuits. The garden has become my studio, the petals my paint, and each composition a unique masterpiece. I

As I ponder whether to identify myself as a florist or an artist, I embrace the idea that perhaps these labels are too limiting.

So, here I am, navigating the enchanting land and between florist and artist, reveling in the beauty that arises when nature and creativity intertwine. As flowers continues to bloom, so too does the realisation that labels are but fleeting, while the joy of creating something uniquely mine is everlasting.
