And it’s there when I look in your eyes…

So here we are steam rollin towards THAT day, you know the day when you’re supposed to endow your loved one with all they desire. 

All those hints you missed on the kitchen table, that jewellery catalogue (*REPCO) conveniently left open under your windscreen wiper… at face height. 

Yeah THAT day.

That one day set aside for chocolate and flowers… at the same time.

THAT day set aside for love, not the normal day to day bread and butter love, but showing your love off in all its uppercase, underlined, bold type grandeur.

Now, I’m going to tread weary (just this once) around my disdain for the combination of consumerism and “love”, the idea of a dollar value dictating your degree of passion sends angry Ishna in a spiral, and tonight my dears I’m going to save my children from a lecture by pressing angry Ishna’s pause button.

I will say I do miss the idea of sending a single rose (or roadside daisy) to someone you secretly admire, there was once such a beauty in receiving an anonymous bloom.

Ahhhh I swoon

And such swooning was in the air during shooting for our February issue of WildTomato magazine.

Kelly of The New Blak and I were happy girls prancing (well kinda) amongst the blooms at The Flower Farm in Richmond, Nelson. 

Channeling romance and creating a dreamy scene with a stunning choice of flowers, many thanks to the staff at The Flower Farm, we were welcomed into the family home and given free reign to use not only the growing spaces of The Flower Farm but the family gardens too….
