Why did you choose floristry for your profession/career?

Accidental I suppose through an opportunity given by a wonderful lady called Jane Morrell, with whom I have grown very close to over the years. Jane had a florist in the town of Totnes back in 1999 to 2003 called Green Fuse, where she offered me (Don) a job as a florist. Within a short period I was managing the shop having developed a flair for wedding flower design and transferred 15 years of retail eperience with M&S.
