Anli has always been obsessed with flowers and herbs picked from a garden. There is just something warm, inviting, friendly and familiar about the scents and textures of homegrown flowers. The stories they tell – where they grew, who plan…ted them, what experiences they remind you of. The little ‘surprises’ around every corner, the seasonal flowers that pop-up over night. A few close friends recently held a surprise birthday party for a friend and each guest brought an arm full of flowers, herbs and blossoms from their garden for Anli to decorate the table with. She had so much fun creating with each friend’s special offering. After Adene saw Anli postings of these homegrown flowers pickings, she knew that we can create a fresh, new and exciting Secret shoot from the idea. And so we started to discuss the idea and before we knew it, it snowballed into yet another Secret shoot!
Not even ONE flower was bought for this shoot, everything was picked by Anli from gardens. A special thank you for Mildie Malan for opening her gorgeous garden for us in Paarl on her farm Solomansvlei.
