Here at wild about flowers we love to travel when we can. Being passionate about flowers means that no matter where we are in the world, we'll bring our love of flowers with us.
Despite being a small team, we cover a lot of ground and always bring back inspiring ideas from our visits. From the striking floral installations throughout London to the natural growing poppies on the hills of Kotor, we love to appreciate the true beauty of florals in a different setting and are always stumbling upon beauty spots all over the world.
Perast is an old town on the bay of Kotor with picturesque views that you could only dream of seeing. Although it's a tiny town, it boast a whole lotta history and character with 16 churches and 17 formerly grand palazzi. The memories from when the small town was rich and powerful still very much remain in its enigmatic ruins and newly renovated buildings which emit luxury from each corner. Once the towns largest palace, the Iberostar was originally built in the 18th century. Opened in 2019, is has been completely transformed into a luxury 5* hotel overlooking the scenic views of the Adriatic sea. This heritage hotel had all the right finishing touches, right down to their brightly coloured wall plants which caught our eye.
Kotor is the coastal town of Montenegro and is a famous fortified town. You'll get lost in it's narrow and winding streets before you may find your way to climb the ancient walls of up to St John's fortress. The views are well worth the tiring climb and the beautiful wild flowers you spot along the way keep you going.
The well-known Lake Geneva stretches across France and Switzerland and the city of Geneva sits at the southern tip of its crescent shape. Home to the European headquarters of the United Nations, Geneva is a town of grand buildings holding history and culture. The famous Jet d'Eau can be spotted behind these colourful blooms and is the world's tallest water fountain.
If you want to see beautiful flower installations, London is your place to go. Many of the shops and restaurants regularly have fresh floral and foliage displays to dress their shop frontage. We always enjoy walking the streets of London and discovering inspiring displays. A personal favourite is Peggy Porschen cakes in London which is the most beautiful cake shop you'll come across; inside and out! Located in Chelsea, it's a must see during the week of Chelsea Flower Show, where many businesses take part in Chelsea in Bloom.
Described by many as the more affordable alternative to Venice, Annecy is a beautiful town in France. It is well known for its cobbled streets, winding canals, pastel-coloured houses combined with its breathtaking backdrop of snow topped mountains. The pristine Lake De Annecy is one of the largest lakes in France and is known as the cleanest in Europe. We enjoyed getting lost in the winding streets of Annecy Old Town whilst stumbled on the bright flower boxes.
Set in the quaint outskirts of Somerset, Frome was named by The Times in 2018 as one of the best places to live. With medieval cobbled streets and home to over 400 listed buildings, the market town oozes heritage features in every corner. We always enjoy a visit to The Frome Independent which is held every first Sunday of the month, whilst spotting some beautiful florals growing on the building in-between.
