I thought I'd talk about something a little different for this week’s blog. For some reason I have been thinking about the Toronto Zoo and their animals there and how interesting if animals and flowers can be connected.
So I started searching online and to my amazement, there are so many weird and unique flowers that resemble animals and have animal like features.
I would love to share my thoughts on what each flower looks like. And looking through all the images, I thought to myself, how awesome would these flowers look as a wedding floral bouquet or centerpiece. It would definitely be something to talk about around the table!
