Hyacinths are like Marmite -you either love or hate? I adore them , they are one of the few flowers that creep into the house. The scent is a true delight to my nostrils but not my other half"s -they make him sneeze . He is away climbing/camping in wet Wales . So the house is adorned with heady scents-ahhh!!
The shop smells delightful this time of year!

Spring is just around the corner???

We can make it Spring!

Dates ....

We have just set up a I Mac to replace our old computer- I haven't got quite got round to installing photos ,so I'm afraid you have last years garden pics.
Great belly-aching laughter at the `photo both` Distorted faces ,me and the kids, AHHH, Did make my day.
I was driving around crazily looking for a house to deliver a bouquet today,got there in the end but driving home I vowed to give up deliveries forever, then the lady called when I got back and said the most lovely , kind comments about her bouquet , perhaps IL carry on?
Dreaming of Summer
Looking at seed catalogues
We will be selling Sweet Pea seeds this Spring
The garden will be open June 17th this year for NGS

Oh and we will be on TV next Tuesday -will be rather cheesy ,I fear on BBC "Put your money where your mouth is" 5.15 _ Be amusing????

While I was away.........

Florist in Geneva.

I discovered when we were away- I hate the cold (I knew this !)
I love hot chocolate - they make amazing melted chocolate in the mountains!
I miss my children SO MUCH, when I'm not with them
I do love England (but wish it was warmer!!)
Switzerland is far too expensive and who really wants a Cartier watch ??? All that expensive STUFF I can live without ,give me a tatty ,vintage,peeling paint table/ chair etc... any day!!
I need to go away , do stuff not just work- Several people I know have died lately that have worked solidly ,no holiday etc ,then BANG GONE! Life is too short- So I close now the odd day-hey ,its better that than close for good!!

4 days , three countries.....

We stayed with our lovely Italian friends ,who live in France just over the border from Switzerland. Lovely food consumed , sights to take your breath away and enough rest to recharge - I feel very motivated now I`m back!
Snow in Italy.
Frozen waterfall- to climb....
"Shall we???" well not me , I can tell you !! A long walk through the woods instead!
Mountains and a lake ..... Rick loves mountains , I love water .
One day - a house with shutters! dream house ( I must add , I am more than happy with our current abode but somewhere hot , with a boulangerie around the corner and a lake to dip into would be rather nice?)

Annecy , France.
We loved it here, a lovely lake ,the mountain backdrop, quaint little shops .
