The start of Autumn

Sorry, I don't want to upset anyone, but next week we're in September.
Summer is slowly leaving us, the schools start again and our lovely summer flowers are coming to an end..

A little trip to Covent Garden Market made me embrace the rainy, drooly weather. We won't moan about the weather this year Mr Autumn (Well.. we'll try not to...), but thank you for all the joy you bring with the lovely berries, rosehips and all the gorgeous warm colours of this season!

So in the shop this week you will see some hints of Autumn...

Gorgeous Malus branches, Angelica, Rosehips...

Stunning patio roses

Oh go on then... Can't resist divine Lavender!

Sweet Diadeem spray roses

I love this variety of Oak! The acorns are so cute!

And how sweet are these small Phalaenopsis orchids????

Yay for Autumn!

Look at these gorgeous cut Hydrangeas! Aren't they stunning??? And the size of them!!!

And we decide to continue the theme in plants! ;)

Get yours before the are gone!!!

Our colour scheme this week

It is fair to say that our colour scheme this week has been dominated by mauves, purples, blues and white.
Gorgeous Hydrangeas, Scabiosa, Mentha, Roses, Bridal Gladioli, Ammi... and much more..

A customer requested Lavender to be put in this bouquet. Together with the other herbs it smelled DIVINE!!!!

More mauves, pinks, whites....

Oh! And say hello to Mrs Butterfly! We believe she will become our new regular visitor now Mr B Bee hasn't shown himself for a little while... He probably went on a holiday to the sun... Can't really blame him!

There was a cake.......

 and some sweet the moment they are our best sellers....maggie has grown them for us in her garden (read small holding!!) and is now in full production....earlier in the month they came with copious amounts of bugs (no sprays used here) but now they are nearly bug free!!!...they may only last a few days but my goodnes there are beautiful, scented , frilly lovliness......

 ..we have been lent a cake..there should have been a photo shoot but we all seem to have run out of energy this is not a cake topper...this is a handtied trailing bouqet of roses, sweet peas, lisi, snowberries,rosemary and ivy balanced on a cake.....
