WE’VE BEEN to meet Karen Reynolds, owner of Wild Willow Florists who’ve just opened in Castlegate’s Spencer Market.
Karen told us a lovely story about how her Grandmother used to be a florist and how as a child she spent much of her spare time helping out. Karen said “As a little girl I loved exploring the endless creative opportunities with flowers.
“I’m also a bit of a romantic and I loved seeing happy customers when they collected an arrangement for a special event or person”. This was her inspiration to open Wild Willow and we think she’s done a beautiful job!
Karen is a real flower artist and takes pride in styling every arrangement whether it’s a simple hand tie, or a more unique looking cone, sphere or bag.
We asked Karen what her favourite season is. “Spring is a fabulous season. It conjures up images of nature awakening after winter and there are flowers, twigs and leaves available in a myriad of colours.
“However, in reality I’m able to source almost anything at any time of year – so ask me if you want something specific!”.
So, with Valentines Day next week and Mothers Day a few weeks later, why not treat the special person in your life and visit Karen today.
