Well hello there…
My name is Di, and in 2014, I finally ventured out on my own in the world of flowers and created Myrtle & Bracken.
Born and raised in the country, I have always been inspired by wild and abundant flowers and plants, and have been known to have an obsession with twigs and moss. There is no cure apparently. I live in the rolling countryside of Ayrshire with the most inspiring individual I have ever met, a demon of a Scots Fiddler known as Mr Mackay, he is my Husband and a damn fine florists assistant too. We got hitched in March 2014 and you can see our wee wedding here.
I drink in excess of 20 cups of tea a day, each one with a Marlboro Light and listen to Bach extremely loud when I am creating. I love a well made cocktail. I feed the city foxes. I wear flowers on my head A LOT. Don’t you? In my spare time I look at floral pornography on the internet. I discovered I had Gothic tendancies after being let loose on Pinterest. All good.
I have 2 adorable wee cats, Jack & Django who spend all day chasing pheasants and in turn me chasing them.
When not creating floral alchemy for weddings, I can be found in our cutting gardens
swearing at flowers lovingly caring for our homegrown British flowers.
