“The greatest and noblest pleasure which men can have in this world is to discover new truths; and the next is to shake off old prejudices.” ― Frederick the Great

«… Eliiiiiiiii !!!! You only bought flowers? … ” that was the question that every weekend my father use to ask me. I was the one in charge of the house when I lived in Colombia. My happiest moment of the week in those years was when I had to going to the supermarket to buy groceries. I use to manage really well the money I received from my dad in such a way that I had enough to buy flowers. «… In any case you will never be a florist because you do not have “green fingers “…” that was also something that my dad use to said to me to every week.

And although I grew up with the idea of ​​not having “green fingers” the flowers were always a source of positive energy for me and that final touch that made my home being more “joyful”.

Fortunately, prejudices can be changed and one day I decided that I could learn to make flower arrangements that I could become someone with “green fingers”. So I did it! my first floral art course was as exciting as my first romantic date. And in each class I learned a little more and I let out my passion and creativity. As Frederick the Great said “The greatest and noblest pleasure which men can have in this world is to discover new truths; and the next is to shake off old prejudices.”

The first opportunity I had to express my art was for the weeding of my friend Ana-Luisa, what an honor and what a magnificent experience. That first event was unforgettable. I bought all the flowers that I love and that my friend wanted for that special day. Then another marriage came, then Christmas, then a proposal, more marriages and since then, flowers have not only become that element of decoration that makes my home happy, but it became as well a means of expressing my creativity, an opportunity to share, teach and give. A whole love story that fits perfectly with my mission to bring joy and happiness to people.

I am sure that you also have a secret passion for flowers or that you also dream on creating your own flower arrangements, with my articles and small workshops I will help you to create a loving relationship between you and flowers, not just to fill your space of nature and well-being, but to share them with your loved ones.

With all my love and light, Eli
