First of all, I’d like to extend you a warm welcome to I Love Roses. In this very humble, but ambitious corner of the web, our hope and vision is that you will be able to find the most inspiring online flower magazine, focused on roses, in the world.
Yes, we do set the bar high for ourselves, and we understand that the work ahead is huge, but with the fantastic team of contributors that is behind I Love Roses I personally feel confident that we will have a good chance to give you – our reader – something uniquely beautiful.
So what can you expect from I Love Roses? Well, first of all I Love Roses is all about roses and floral design. About the beauty of the rose. About the joy of growing, handling, arranging and seeing wonderful flowers – and experiencing top-notch floral photography.
The group of people behind I Love Roses – consisting of more than 100 of the world’s most fantastic flower writers, bloggers, floral experts, florists, rose growers, flower photographers, tulip maniacs, baristas, mixologists and chefs– are all driven by a deeply rooted passion for the floral world. Some focus on very technical aspects of rose production in Ecuador, some on how to make the perfect rose-drink in New York – others on how to arrange the perfect wedding bouquet or which rose garden to visit in Paris. They are spread out across the world – from Bogota and Copenhagen, via New York and Cape Town, throughout Europe, Canada, USA and across to Hawaii, ensuring that you will always get the international perspective.
Their worlds are literally worlds apart. What unites them is that they all believe in beautiful flowers, the art of floristry and the love of the rose.
Now, enough with the self promotion. Let’s enjoy some roses!
