A Rugby florist will say it with flowers to celebrate the 200th anniversary of novelist and poet Charlotte Bronte.
Sue Ainley, who owns Garden Gate Flowers, will be joining nine other florists in the village of Haworth, West Yorkshire, to work together to make floral installations both ‘great and small’ for each room of the Bronte Parsonage.
Working from the Old School Rooms where Charlotte taught, they will spend the day using British grown spring flowers to create floral arrangements to sit inside Yorkshire’s most famous museum.
Sue, who studied Jane Eyre many years ago, said: “Mr Rochester is back in my life again and I’m hoping that arranging beautiful British flowers with a group of creative flowery folk will be far less arduous than revising for my O level English literature exam!”
Sue said she is thrilled to be taking part in such a fitting tribute to the author and will post pictures on Facebook and Instagram: garden gate rugby and via her new blog at www.gardengate rugby.co.uk
