Hi please checkout my new website and blog
there are new features coming soon, and the new Lavender Shed (and "The Dog House) spin off hosted by myself and my loyal woof Watson(when he wants to make an appearance!) which will show you that you can recreate that arrangement you have recently seen and follow me through my trials completing my floristry course, and learning new skills which will lead up to me fulfilling my dream of becoming a demonstrator.
See you soon.

Attended a demonstrator refresher day in Solihull, met some lovely people. The teacher was Janey Hayden. A lovely lady called Janine passed onto me some historical items for me to use for my NaFAS Diploma. Here is my design and some of the others. Oh and Pat's trifle was lush.

We are proud and privileged that some birdies have chosen our garden to build a nest out of moss. I found it in the russian vine last night as i was pulling the vine down, it is all safe and we watched a small wren flit to and from it last night

Firstly a night out at granny grandad's last night dressed for the occasion, and after so much woofing at the match a lazy sunday afternoon reading the papers and having a lager. He was so pleased to see The Hound in the Mail on Sunday today.

Went to Chelsea yesterday and firstly me and mum won a prize each when the flower displays were raffled off in the first talking flowers demo. Thank goodness for the new taxi driver. Here is the Diamond Garden from Chelsa.

Well been a busy week, monday class was the pedestal arrangement. Then just a few flowers from the car boot sale yesterday that i made to sell, will show you my stall just as soon as i get the picture in my email box.
The roses, well they are just divine. Blizzard roses with a beautiful scent were just simply handtied, had to keep some for me.
Then the paeonies, ranunculus and snowflake gerbera, if i could eat them i would.

Had a thoroughly enjoyable morning at Moulton College in Peterborough in the grounds of Peterborough Cathedral. Maureen Amies was a very good teacher and a pleasure to work alongside. Here are my results.

Last night we had our club meeting, a fab demonstrator called Bob Harris showed us his interpretation of a magic carpet ride, two of the arrangements shown are Holland and India, and there is also my entry to the competition where i came 2nd, by the way i did fill that bit of oasis you can see with some forget me nots out of the garden. A good night was had by all, and Michael as Tottenham made it into next years champions league.
Had a lovely day out with my friend Linda on Sunday we went to the Tulip Floribunda celebration at Chatsworth House. It was a very cold day but managed to walk round the gardens and after a nice bit of lunch were inspired by Jonathan Moseley's floral displays shared here with you.
