Author and designer Lucy Hunter’s transition between garden and flower design is a testament to the fluidity of her creativity. Many of us know her as Lucy the Flower Hunter, admiring her stunning floral designs on social media. However, her roots in garden design are a significant part of her story that deserves the spotlight. It’s fascinating how social media can sometimes lead us to miss the depth of one’s journey, so we’re excited to shed light on the origins of Lucy’s creative evolution in BB Podcast Episode 115 and introduce you to her newest book called The Flower Hunter: Creating a floral love story inspired by the landscape.
