What a lovely story for the beginning of your beautiful business ;0

It's inspiring to hear about the beginnings of your business. So many people want to take the plunge and follow their dream but find so many reasons not to try. By sharing your ideas and choices- you help to make the possibilities for others more real. And doable.

I think that any life event can help to you to evaluate where you are and where you might want to go. How wonderful for you that your maternity leave resulted not only in a lovely child but a satisfying and creative business.

It is so interesting to learn that you were a curator at the Hunterian Art Gallery. My only trip to Glasgow, some years ago ... perhaps when you were at the Gallery, was inspired by by wanting to see the Gallery's collection of Whistler and Macinstosh works.

I walked to the University from the train station and when I got to the campus, asked the whereabouts of the Gallery. Folks repeatedly directed me to the Museum! Finally a beautiful sari-wearing student actually walked with me to the Gallery. I was delighted with all that I saw there, and who knows, might even have seen you.

Back in the 1970's I was an archivist at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, one of many career choices.

Those Nice tulips are definitely catalysts to launch a career. Best wishes. xo

Those tulips look almost edible. It's always inspiring to read about people who've changed career. It's funny how sometimes a path somehow presents itself if you are open to change. I spent 11 years in a good but soul-destroying job until I happened to read about a course at my local college that sent me off in a completely new direction.

You too - I did an RHS course, loved it, wish I too could make in my career - my grandfather was the head gardener, in the 1950`s at the place I did my RHS course.
So that was a a wonderful experience, working the same soil, keeping warm in the victorian orchid house that he had once worked in.
Then I just wish and wish and wish.

What a lovely way to start a business & what a beautiful flower to inspire you.
