I came in to Brother and Sisters Flower Shop early in the day a couple of weeks ago to find that they were still setting up. This is not unusual, as they change things on a daily basis, and most of their foot traffic starts around lunch time. I love going in early, saying ‘Hi,’ wandering around looking at what’s new, and basking in the serenity. I found the Straw flowers had been gathered and moved into this huge pot of glory. The ladder in the background, and other evidence of the huge amount of work the owner and assistant do every day to create a constantly evolving space, made the shop feel even more intimate, as if I was trusted to see the inner workings of the creation of an isle of sanity.
