Back


Well its back to work after a few days spent beach combing on Kingsbarns Beach near to St Andrews. We borrowed a cottage from a friend which was ten minutes walk from the beach - these poppies and ragwort growing out of the top of a wall were one of the things we passed on the way.

Now I am busy working on the flowers for a wedding at the weekend - making moss garlands to put over the arch into the church, taping grids on glass vases and painting barrels to plant up with daisies.

But first I think that I shall make myself a cup of coffee and go and delight in the sight of thousands of blooming sweet peas before they all get cut tomorrow.

I've just found your blog and I love it - really beautiful, inspirational flowers. I started trying to grow a cutting garden this year but it didn't really come together in time - maybe next year! Meanwhile I shall just look at yours ...

Welcome back! I hope that you have enjoyed the bracing sea breezes and fun on the beach. Family summer holidays are very precious.
