Anzac remembered

In Remembrance

’The ANZAC tradition – the ideals of courage, endurance and mateship that are still relevant today – was established on 25 April, 1915 when the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula.

“Two little boys” – A song made famous by the all Australian
Ralph Harris and sung in many a school assembly but do the young Australians really understand the meaning behind it?

I think they do. Being a New Zealander and coming to
Australian 8 years ago, I was thrilled to see that ANZAC day and its meaning was both commemorated so beautifully in schools and the children were taught its significance. Often a wreath in Laurel is ordered or paper poppies sold to remember the fallen. I recall seeing these gorgeous flowers growing wild in the fields of northern Europe.

As a Florist is it a pleasure to get an order for such a wreath, placing the purple “Lest we forget “ sash carefully onto each one.

As you reflect on this day yourself with friends and family
give special thought to the Diggers who fought or sacrificed their lives for their country.

Lyrics to Two Little Boys :

Two little boys had two little toys
Each had a wooden horse
Gaily they played each summers day
Warriors both of cause
One little chap then had a mishap
Broke off his horses head
Wept for his toy, then cried with joy
As his young playmate said
Did you think I would leave you crying
When there’s room on my horse for two
Climb up here, Jack and don’t be crying
I can go just as fast with two
When we grow up we’ll both be soliders
And our horses will not be toys
And I wonder if we’ll remember when we were
Two little boys
Long years past, war came so fast
Bravely they marched away
Cannon roared loud and in the mad crowd
Wounded and dieing lie, up goes a shout
A horse dashes out, out from the ranks so blue
Gallops away to where Joe lay, then came a voice he know
Did you think I would leave you dieing
When there’s room on my horse for two
Climb up here, Joe we’ll soon be flying
I can go just as fast with two
Did you say Joe I’m all a tremble, perhaps it’s the battles noise
But I thinks its that I remember when we were two little boys
Do you think I would leave you dieing
There’s room on my horse for two
Climb up here, Joe we’ll soon be flying
Back to the ranks so blue
Can you feel Joe I’m all a tremble, perhaps it’s the battles noise
But I think its that I remember when we were two little boys

Two little boys had two little toys
Each had a wooden horse
Gaily they played each summers day
Warriors both of cause
One little chap then had a mishap
Broke off his horses head
Wept for his toy, then cried with joy
As his young playmate said

Did you think I would leave you crying
When there’s room on my horse for two
Climb up here, Jack and don’t be crying
I can go just as fast with two
When we grow up we’ll both be soliders
And our horses will not be toys
And I wonder if we’ll remember when we were
Two little boys

Long years past, war came so fast
Bravely they marched away
Cannon roared loud and in the mad crowd
Wounded and dying lie, up goes a shout
A horse dashes out, out from the ranks so blue
Gallops away to where Joe lay, then came a voice he know

Did you think I would leave you dying
When there’s room on my horse for two
Climb up here, Joe we’ll soon be flying
I can go just as fast with two
Did you say Joe I’m all a tremble, perhaps it’s the battles noise
But I thinks its that I remember when we were two little boys

Do you think I would leave you dying
There’s room on my horse for two
Climb up here, Joe we’ll soon be flying
Back to the ranks so blue
Can you feel Joe I’m all a tremble, perhaps it’s the battles noise
But I think its that I remember when we were two little boys

LEST WE FORGET

The life of a Florist at Kavelle Flowers

Modern corporate arrangement in pinks

Corporate floware arrangement at the Hilton Sydney

From where I sit….

I have the privilege and pleasure to work with beautiful natural flowers everyday. Being a Florist is certainly
a joy.

It all begins on a Monday morning in our Studio at Kavelle Flowers, in the Eastern Suburbs at Coogee.   Mondays are full
of buzz, there will be talk of the wedding that was styled on Saturday and how beautiful everything looked, to what we are using in our corporate arrangements work at the Hilton, Sydney, to the Monday morning flowers for the week.

There is always a new array of colours of the season for the Sydney Eastern suburbs customer. A rainbow of
colours, textures and scents ready for use in beautiful arrangements or fabulous bouquets filled with Lillies, roses in every tone, chrysanthemums, carnations, iris, gerberas, natives and greenery to complement.

I often feel like a child on Christmas morning opening up the brown boxes straight from the flower market. There is anticipation and squeals of delight as the natural delicacies are
carefully lifted, conditioned and watered so they will live again.

My artist’s palette unfolds as beauty is arranged on the studio walls, as vibrant as a freshly painted mural. Careful consideration is taken with each and every order.

Flowers are picked for colour and fragrance, arranged, preened and packaged until they are just perfect! Our flowers are delivered in delightful fashion and with a smile.
….Yes it is good to be a Florist.

What’s coming up?

Soon is that time of year to
think of our Mothers, Aunties, Grandmothers and even daughters as Mothering
Sunday approaches. It is time to be thoughtful, giving, kind and generous to
repay the selfless energy that is given out on a daily basis by these fantastic
women in our lives. There are plenty of ideas for Mothers day at the Studio.
You might like a table arrangement for the family dinner planned, or the
children may like to come up with Dad and pick up that special surprise to be
presented with breakfast in bed.

 

We have an array of gifts
especially for Mum, come in and sample the gorgeous range of triple scented
candles – we have tantalising scents from a fruity cocktail of Coconut and
lime, fresh Lemongrass and exotic Oriental. The candles are made by a local
business woman – Be enlightened, they are soy wax based and burn up to 80 hours.
Then of course there are bouquets, a mix of lilies and roses is always a
winner, a beautiful box of perfect pinks or perhaps an exotic orchid plant to
grace the mantel. There are hand-creams, soaps and baskets made to order.  You won’t be disappointed by choice.
