Well where did that year go? Our feet have not touched the floor. The rural garden is beginning to take shape and with a little bit of luck we will be picking flowers and foliage and being very resourceful next year. To date I have managed to use my own astrantias and panicum grass pictured above in a bridal bouquet. We have had a little help from a new family member. Meet Chloe, she is now 9 months old and just loves digging. Oh and eating just about everything.
Chloe helps on most deliveries and kept the Christmas wreath workshop team amused. A complete time waster!
DOUBLE TREES HOTEL. At the beginning of the year we completed a fantastic project at the Double Trees Hotel, Kingston Upon Thames. It’s remarkable what a difference a little bit of planting can make. Now with a great outdoor space they are praying for a hot summer to make full use of it. A great location for shopping, Wimbledon and The Hampton Court Flower Show. Check out the gin bar too!
THE WI LAMBOURN. In December I was asked to give a flower arranging demo at The Lambourn WI. No pressure! Great evening though and made to feel very welcome. Seems so long ago but we raised enough money on the raffle for two places at Crisis for the Christmas period. So thank you for asking me and thank you for letting me hold the raffle.
Finally just like to say a big thank you to all my clients for their continued support this year.
