Hello, my name is Emma.
Welcome to A Bunch Of Wild, a seasonal photo journal of flowers and nature.
I grow beautiful flowers in my cottage garden in Bedfordshire. My chickens eat the slugs and the ladybirds eat the greenfly so everyone is happy. I’m often in my greenhouse with a cold cup of tea, and Purdey my beagle by my feet. I just love growing and arranging flowers that have a wonderful scent and twist and bend in the vase! My floral creations are very loose and informal and I plan carefully for the seasons so there is usually something flowering from April till November! I’m also mad on foraged foliage which makes a very seasonal and sustainable display of blooms capturing a delightful wildness. My background is in interiors and styling, and I find florals play a key part in finishing a look!
I make bouquets, wreaths and arrangements to order and I also supply flowers to the rather lovely home and gift shop Minchin and May in Woburn, it is run by two lovely sisters! Well worth a visit! Please see the blog for when our flowers are at their shop.
I also dry and press flowers, use them for dying silk and floral scrapbooking. These are then turned into floral pieces of art that are available through my Etsy store.
For collaborations please get in touch.
