Well this is totally unheard of... Actually writing a blog post on the same day as an event... But it is 2017 and this is the new me! I no longer drink diet coke or let months of receipts pile up or eat chocolate biscuits or fall asleep wearing makeup.
Unfortunately I know myself - this won't last but let's enjoy the momentum while it is here.
Today I welcomed two gorgeous ladies to the studio - Pei (who just loves flowers) and Amber (who has a beautiful shop in Somerset). It was lovely to start off the year flowering and hearing about these two's adventures in the floral world. It was a frosty morning and so after a quick walk around neighbouring Ightham Mote with husb and pup I foraged the best that I could from the garden and then retreated to the warmth of the studio as quickly as possible.
Stand out flowers for today included beautifully scented garden roses, huge pink anenomes and plum ranunculus. The garden surprised me this morning - I thought I would struggle but the eucalyptus is still going strong and I'm spoiled with deep purple and green pittosporum. All 3 of us turned out to be big foliage fans and the work produced was just beautiful as I am sure you will agree! One of the things I loved most about today was how different everyone's work ended up being. Enjoy and Happy New Year xx
