Wedding Gallery page

Finally some pictures!!!
When I have a little more time (and patience!) I will try and arrange the images in a more friendly viewing manner, for now I'm afraid it is one long page. Hope your fingers don't hurt too much by the time you have scrolled to the bottom (please scroll to the bottom, I fear I may have put people off?!?)

Colours of Spring on a grey day

Despite the grey, a beautiful day was spent at Chippenham Park gardens, admiring the Snowdrops and Hellebores and warming ourselves by the giant fire.
Beautiful selection of Hellebores

Amazing colours of Dogwood and Catkins

and beautifully scented Witch hazel

We became slightly snap happy on our day trip, so pop over to my husbands blog to get his take on the day.

Stylish Blogger Award

A big thank you to Elly.


Who awarded me with a stylish blogger award, and made my day.

Planting by candle light (well, sort of)

I came home from work last night very excited to discover I had received a delivery of bare root plants and bulbs. Now any normal person would wait till daylight to start planting, however, realising that they would have to sit and sweat in their little plastic bags for a week until I had a day to get outside, I set about rigging up lighting in the polytunnel!

Some might say crazy, I like to say enthusiastic!

Ahh a lovely gin & tonic for Valentine's Day!!

I am sitting back and relaxing with a lovely gin and tonic after a busy day getting ready for Valentine's day in the shop.  We've prepared lots of orders ready for delivery tomorrow; made as much as we could until we ran out of stock, ready for an early morning start with a fresh delivery of flowers and foliage.

In other news, I have been rather chuffed with my new ebay purchase. I am just slightly obsessed with vintage china and glass and this week I purchased a beautiful large wash jug in cream, with a pretty green rose print.

 So this week's creation for my local pub, the Nevill Crest and Gun was created in my new purchase.
(Not a great picture i'm afraid, it was a grey, dreary morning before I delivered it.)

Natural flowers in a vintage jug, perfect for a country pub, come summer they will be home grown, even better!

Happy Valentine's Day everybody.

Dreaming of summer

 It looks as if we are all dreaming of summer in blog world. Sarah over at Modern Country Style is having an English garden party and I want in. We had the best English garden party last summer in the form of our wedding. A lot of hard work went in to the preparations for the big day but we were all thrilled with the final results and we had an amazing day.

And finally the productive part of the garden where I had all the sweet peas growing ready for the big day.
