Cornish Hydrangeas

This weekend we were awash with the most beautiful English all the beautiful shades of russet.....blues...pale...vibrant....muted.....creamy whites....verging over purple.......

Open for Business!

Yesterday was long....but worth every moment. We were all very excited, and armed with cupcakes and Fizz, we met the lovely people of Hungerford.

Our flowers did the talking and we have lots of compliments on the look of our shop...they loved the cool white walls, and the vintage curious adored with blooms....

Beautiful Blue green glass ware....American mason jars...yummy!!

Teapot and Orchid anyone?

Thank you everyone who came along to support their local Hungerford Florist.
