A few weeks ago I mentioned that I dislike flowers that compete for attention. The kind of flowers that, have an overwhelming presence. And that whilst taking the spotlight, mute everything else around them.

To me,  a flower is more powerful, if its beauty speaks for itself.

I also prefer flowers that still look like they come from nature, and maintain an element of realism to them.

It’s kind of like that situation with makeupDo you want a natural makeup look? Or do you want one that looks like you’ve caked it on?! So it’s kind of like that.

Today, I want to share with you, a florist in Adelaide that shares my views on flowers.

Ponder Posy is an Adelaide-based florist. It’s run by the talented flower and foliage artisan, Rebecca Trevitt.

Ponder Posy describes its selection of flowers, and how she celebrates their beauty as:

crooked stems that don’t fit in a vase,
broken leaves that let the sunshine through and
hand spun wildness for special events,
botanical installations and heart-filled posies.

Pretty neat ha?! Yep, these are definitely my kind of flowers!

I discovered Ponder Posy a few weekends ago, at a coffee shop called Local Crowd Cafe, located in the suburbs (Colonel Light Gardens) of Adelaide. A stunning suburb by the way (so much greenery)! All the coffee tables at Local Crowd  Cafe were decorated with small vases of Ponder Posy arrangements. Of course, I made sure I took lots of photos, and those are what I wanted to share with you today.

If you are local to Adelaide and have the opportunity or the excuse to enjoy a nice cup of coffee, then you should visit Local Crowd Cafe, and sit down to check out the flower arrangements in person. [Edit Dec 2016] I’ve been to the cafe several times since, and they always have different arrangements from Ponder Posy in rotation, so hopefully it’s a long-term staple of the decor.
