Flora for Funerals
" All nature has a feeling: woods, fields, brooks
Are life eternal : and in silence they
Speak happiness beyond the reach of books
There's nothing mortal in them: their decay
Is the green life of change: to pass away
And come again in blooms revivified...... "
Loss. We understand that it can be a bewildering time, so lovely flowers that are simple to organise and speak from the heart is comforting.
Inky arranges flora for caskets, tributes from family and friends and for wake venues. We can provide flora suitable for Natural Burial Grounds as well as other locations.
We provide an individual approach to the person and their family and don't have a 'standard offering '. Whether in person, or by phone we are here to discuss how the flowers can reflect your loved one's life story. Flowers in favourite colours whether gentle or vivid, perhaps they were a keen vegetable gardener, fond of herbs, party goer, or a traveller with a zest for adventure. There is always something special that can be done and often with locally grown blooms .
" How people die remains in the memory of those who live on "
Cicely Saunders ( Hospice movement founder )
Sometimes people want to be involved with arranging their own funeral .
Inky’s own mother, with a lifelong passion for all things green, mused in her last months about what she would like and shared it with us. At a time where little could be done and the outside world and garden unreachable for her, it was a positive and soothing occupation. These are moments we now treasure.
Inky welcomes the opportunity to come and discuss what is wanted and provide flowers when asked.
