Fowey awash with flowers
Written by The Cormorant Hotel
The town of Fowey, just a few miles from our Fowey accommodation in Golant, has been decked out in flowers this week by a guerrilla flower arranger determined to make people smile.
The fun started last Tuesday morning when a bunch of fabulous flowers was discovered on the steps of the old HSBC bank in the middle of Fowey.
Then, on Wednesday another bouquet was found by a surprised member of the public on the quay.
It's since been discovered that Fowey's Garden Gate Flower Company has been behind the fun.
Florists Rebecca Stuart, Penelope Dunn and Marion Parish have been spreading the floral bouquets after reading about the Lonely Bouquet movement - a trend started in Belgium which has seen floral bouquets left in random places to raise a smile.
And having been inspired the trio have been leaving flowers grown at Trezare Farm near Fowey around the town to advertise remind people about British Flowers Week.
Rebecca said: "Our first bouquet disappeared very quickly so I think whoever picked it up must have seen us leaving it in place and we decided to be more secretive about it.
"It's been really good fun and people have been running out of their shops when they see our car."
Rebecca said she expects the company will carry out the same stunt again soon.
"The reaction to it has been really positive so I think we will do it all again," she said.
So look out for some seemingly misplaced bouquets next time you visit Fowey.
