In May 2013, I started with a photo series on Instagram under the hashtag #onebouquetperday. Every day, until the 31st of October, I picked a bouquet of flowers, wild ones found in the meadows and woods and varieties from our garden, and posted the photo on Instagram.
Last year, I took up my #onebouquetperday series again. In 184 days, I picked 184 flower bouquets, well-documented by my camera. This time, I was joined by people in France, the USA, Netherlands, Germany, Denmark and other countries, some only during their summer holidays, others for two, three months.
One of the people who joined me, was Elodie Love (yes, that is her real name) of Madame Love, a beautiful French flower and interior blog. The other day, Elodie surprised me with a pretty collage of my photos and a lovely little post about my #onebouquetperday project - have a look here.
I follow Elodie on Instagram as well and every day I enjoy a good portion of Parisian chic and flower inspiration while parading my vintage dresses together with muddy wellies in the Scanian countryside.
This year I will start my flower series for the third time, maybe even a bit earlier, in April. Like Elodie, quite a few of my followers have already asked to join the floral journey again and I am very much looking forward to pick the first spring bloomers in a few weeks. From the curious little heads of the springdrops to tell, the bouquet picking season will soon be starting...
