A florist from Newton Poppleford says opening her very own shop is a dream come true.
Beth Higgins, 23, has been welcomed to Budleigh Salterton after launching Ditsy Blooms in the town on March 30.
Beth has spent the last two years pursuing her career as a florist from home since moving south from Cheshire.
She recently completed a two-year floristry course at Bicton College, where she graduated top of her group with a level two qualification.
After completing the course, Beth launched Ditsy Blooms from her Newton Poppleford home and held Christmas wreath workshops in Sidmouth.
