Off again, on our travels...

 Don't know how I will cope with this view each day???
Off to the magical Kas, in Turkey.
My girl done good!! All the hard work paid off, we can take a huge sigh of relief and relax on hols.
Im very proud of them both, as Flynn hugged her lots saying, " well done" baked her a cake too.

Tut tut, SHOP CLOSED Again!!! From 29th- 6th Sept - if desperate to leave a message, someone will be here to pick it up and look after Ede!

Girlie trip...

 Ede, Poppy and I hit the beach... Holkham - normally takes 1 and half hours , this week it took 3!! Terrible traffic. The boys were working so we had an away day. Lovely Summers day.
GCSE results day tomorrow .... Fingers crossed for Poppy.

A blaze of Summer colour...

Another weekend and another wedding- on the hottest day of the year! So glad this bride had a fab day.
Lovely to work with such lovely colours.

These are the SPECIAL Scabious I was telling you about!! Probably be all the rage at Chelsea flower show some day?? Plum pudding- such a lush name too.

Im bad!!

Flowers for a photo shoot this week.

I do realise I'm totally hopeless at writing engaging, descriptive long blogs. Sorry and all, writing is not my forte - I'm better with an image anyway, but perhaps that's not enough, I hear you cry, so I shall try and be a bit more forthcoming in my next blogs, but do bare with me!
I did nearly through  in the towel, before my holiday, I was exhausted , I can see that now. Trouble with working for yourself, you try and do it all.

Today I went with my pal,  Graham Rice ( the brilliantly talented garden author , that gives me a nudge in the right direction when I need it) to a huge nursery that produces small plants for the wholesaler and introduces some new varieties. I'm lucky that some interesting new (some not even out yet) plant varieties come my way and I grow them and get Graham to photograph them and we check how they hold up to vase life. This is one of the exciting things in my job. We looked at trials of lots of plants today. I love these Salivas - I adore Saliva's for their  long flowering power and some have incredible   blackcurrant scented leaves . Graham lives in the US and pops back for work and family a few times a year, so it's always good to catch up.

This weekends wedding...

 Poppy amongst the flowers.

Having returned from a very relaxing holiday I felt very chilled doing this wedding.
I'm glad they had Summer weather for this wedding.
The organist was at the church practising, very atmospheric, arranging the flowers.

Perfect holiday.....

 I don't think I have ever felt so relaxed? Some sun!! Cool breezes, good food, lots of swims, friendly people-what more could you ask for??

I think we will be back!!
