Cheers me dear!!!

I went out with a very dear friend last night - we both don't do winter very well and dream of Greece in times of grey skies! I was feeling flat Jan and it was so nice to chat about our longings of sunshine over a glass of red . She encouraged me to strive to do the shop and for that i will always be grateful. I love her bubbly enthusiasm and encouragement for her friends . I hope she gets her blue sky this year.

The first of the bunch to shine through.

So simple so cheery on a cold winters day.

Iv been bombarded with wedding bookings for the year ahead-not that I'm complaining !

January is such a good month for planning, i love looking for holidays,new ideas for the shop,my house. I'm not one for starting the new year with diets-Oh no , I'm a firm believer we need stews and sticky toffee puds to keep us warm on winters night and cosy next to the fire.

This and that

When I set up the business and the whole idea of the shop was to combine a mix of flowers country style and from the garden.

Plants to sell reflecting the garden style.

Locally produced handmade crafts

Vintage bits and bobs

A whole package of gifts and treasures .

I also sell candles country gifts etc as its hard for the suppliers to keep up with demand and have such a selection . I have never said we ONLY sell things from the garden or handmade .

As much as id love to 100% Its a tall order.

A lady came in demanding English grown flowers xmas eve-now that is a very tall order in our climate!!

This time of year we ponder on ideas and direction-we shall see where the year takes us.

I love having a MIX of ideas and products and helps the business tic over in winter.

I love to be digging the garden one day -be in a church doing a wedding the next and taking pictures for cards another.
Being open Wed-Sat allows me to do this as well as see my beloved family . Do a weekly shop and sometimes clean the house!!!

snuggled up

Its soooo cold!!!!

Going back into the shop was a shock! You would think i would be use to the cold working with flowers! Yet i don't think i will ever be a winter girl-Roll on spring. Ede is not keen either a snuggle in the warm is all that girl is wanting.
