  |   Flowers   |   4 Comments

A million thank yous  Nicolette Camille and Sarah Ryhanen for an epic day of flower heaven at The Little Flower School, visiting London, incredible to watch and learn from you both, thank you x

Check out a video that’s come out since, by New York Times Style Magazine here

Susanne of The Blue Carrot and I headed to London on the train, taking in all the sights along the way, excited to say the least!

 The House Next Door, was the stunning venue…

And, in the writing of this…boiled the milk over (nearly), lots on worktop, to Ben’s amusement and confirmation of ‘you always burn the milk!’  Shot out to the shop for a Da Bara croissant, then got half way through Ben’s Hotel Chocolat Egg and Chips, an Easter present from my lovely sister Lucinda x …now feeling sick, concerned about the sugar after reading this, but now also listening Neil Young, (preceded by this) thanks Miss P, and contemplating a run..getting pleading looks from the whippet!  Happy Saturday! x

    Love this post, bit behind the times having just seen it!
    Was so much fun having you to stay. Adore your efforts back home, amazing. In their arrangements (third picture from the top) how do they get the height? That Lily must have the longest stem in the world..?
    You ate Ben’s egg and chips Easter egg…..naughty?!
    Love you

      Ahh, thanks lovely!! Look forward to another trip up to see you, always such fun! Thanks for your amazing support always xox Well, lilies do have long stems, but I know what you mean?! This was made when we arrived, possibly just in the water, so ok for event display… Not a firm answer!! Love you too gorgeous, big kiss and loads of love xxxxx
