Tollys' Magic

Martin brought a rather unpromising bunch of twigs from the market last week.......the bunch was large...we saw the twigs before the man.
Sharp garden implements were needed to cut them into a suitable size for the largest container in the shop.
They have caused some excitement here.
The ugly ducklings have  become swans, large waxy blooms of Magnolia, pure bliss.

(Tollys' magic comes from the book Children of Green Knowle by Lucy Boston..his grandmother brings bare twigs in at winter to force them into bloom....clever lady!!)

mellow yellow

 we just can't get enough of the gorgeous Cornish paper white narcissus at the moment..teamed up with fluffy  french mimosa and dutch parrot tulips...we have a European bouquet!!!

Beautiful pale apricot roses took our breath away...............

on  a freezing cold Saturday it has been discussions on Mothers Day...what colours....which flowers....bouquet styles.....tissue colours....we may step away from the traditional pink....
but after a while it was all a blur.....

they say there may be sun tomorrow....fingers crossed.
