Highbury Fields is a beautiful place for a lazy Sunday stroll. With wide, flat, open grasslands, children will love to run around, cycle and play games. The fields are prettily dotted with wildflowers, more than your regular daisies and dandelions. There’s also beautiful flower designs framing some of the park’s iconic statues and monuments.
The New River Walk is a great way to explore the history of Islington; linking Islington with the open countryside in Hertfordshire. Contrary to its name, the 45km footpath is neither new or by a river, instead being a walkway adjacent to a water supply aqueduct. The walkway features incredible scenery and an impressive variety of trees, including the dawn redwood and swamp cypress.
With these gorgeous spaces right on your doorstep, it’s a shame not to bring some of the beauty of nature into your own home. Why not take a look at our selection of online flowers at Arena Flowers now and let us delivery some nature to your door.
There are ways to get directly involved in flower events if you’re living in the Islington area. A brilliant way to develop your knowledge and passion for floristry it to try a course in flower arranging. A brilliant place to do this that is highly regarded all over London is the Paula Pryke Flower School. It’s a brilliant place for all ability levels as Paula accepts both students with little or no experience as well as people who already work with flowers. Paula is recognised and celebrated for her brilliant use of vibrant colours, making this a great place to come and be inspired for your next order from Arena Flowers.
Most people will know London as being the home of the most famous flower show in the world: the Chelsea Flower Show. However, residents of Islington can get involved in the flower competition action on a smaller scale; right on their doorstep, Islington in Bloom is a competition hosted and ran by the horticultural group, the Islington Gardens, with support and help from Islington Council. The 2014 competition is currently looking for entrants, with the judging event happening between 16th and 28th June. Head down there to meet fellow flower enthusiasts and get hints and tips for your own flower growing. Don’t feel like you have to leave the beautiful displays behind you. Make an order from Arena Flowers and let us deliver your own beautiful blooms direct to your door.
When heading to your local parks, take particular interest in the areas of high flower density and you may notice some species you’ve never seen before. One butterfly that you are likely to see is the wall brown butterfly, an amber coloured butterfly. Why not use this butterfly as inspiration for your next order from Arena Flowers, choosing a bouquet in summery oranges and yellows to bring some happiness into your house.
