Inspired to do something creative after a difficult few months, local florist, Ruth Milton Jones put together this fabulous shoot. She tells us: "2020 is proving to be a challenge for everyone, so after a few months of little work, I was eager to dust down my scissors and get my imagination going. Living on the Gower, I thought what better place to look for inspiration than The Oxwich Bay? I decided to use sand dunes as a backdrop and draw upon the deep creams and olive greens in the grass for the flowers. I used a combination of dried and fresh plant material, choosing varieties to capture the wildness of the beach and gentle summer breeze. In contrast, big, bold leaves and palms were added to create a dramatic effect."
