Pick, pick, picking...

Full time picking at the moment. All the flowers for the shop were from the garden last week.
Poppy took this shot tonight, Im not keen on having my picture taken!

 Now Poppy has left school,and with bags of time on her hands till A levels, she has been busy decorating. She painted the hall a refreshing white (so dark, any other shade)
We had a bit of a move around too, I'm very happy with the results (and very relived I didn't have to do it!)
Storage for hats and gloves etc.
Ede was a great help!!

I rustled up a few bouquets and made the tea!

Picked before the rain spoils them- Ok, old fashioned garden Roses don't last half as long as the forced , flown half across the world ones- but boy, they make up for it in perfume-I could sniff them all day!
This one is William Lobb.

Everyone is fed up with the weather- they all keep coming in and telling me so, well, so am I !!!!

Lets hope the weekend is better?????

Begging your pardon..

For I have not commented on other posts and replied to comments.
Time runs away, running a shop having a family, doing the garden.
These days along with the daily jobs of running a business we are to 'tell the world' all about it too.
Some employ staff to do this- All me . (Even if I'm totally rubbish at it!, I try!)

 Walk today with Miss Ede!

Poppy has her last exam and very last day at school today!!
Less stress, I hope now!! So hard for them all the pressure!

The sepia tone goes alongside the weather at the moment-I think its getting us all down?

Garden is open this Sunday-I guess it will bucket it down? Folk seem to relish telling me how dreadful it will be weather wise! Im trying to not let it get to me. Nothing we can do about it.
