The week of flowers

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.

Kettering and District Flower Club

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.

The committee

The newly formed Oakley Vale WI had our first committee meeting on Tuesday, here we are.

Jonathan Moseley at Chatsworth House

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.

A long time away here's an update

Well here is the lovely handtied bouquet i made for one of our poorly friends from the Come Dine Girls, unfortunately Ally couldn't join us on the evening so Claire fondly known to me as Miss Tess of the Durbavilles delivered it. I also have started my evening class again and this was the result of my first arrangement for the new term.
