I like Flowers. Do you grow them yourself? I imagine it would be quite expensive to buy all that lot?

Craig, they are mainly sweet peas with some asters, platycodon and gladioli in the background.

B2R...... :o
No need to worry about the expense! Husband has grown them all from seed apart from the gladioli (bulbs).

I normally buy Flowers from Tesco. Quite a lot actually as I often displease the missus  lot  L0L

But I wouldn't know my gladioli from my Wolf out of Gladiators!

I like the really bright coloured ones the best, can't remember what they are called though!

I have done a display of dahlias this week. Not very subtle but nice bright colours for my new friend B2R!   ;D

Does no one else do flower arranging? Does anyone enter exhibits for the local shows? It would be great to see the handicraft that must be out there.

Had visitors for lunch today so I made this arrangement with bits from the garden.

I've got the "A team" here this weekend, my 90 year old mum!
She says hello to you all and this is what she has been arranging this morning.

Your mum is incredibly talented Hollins and I can see where you've inherited your talent from.      $good$

Give her a hug and our best wishes too.

Hugo, Mum is 94 now and missing like mad her trips over here.
I have only just taken the xmas wreath down that I made.
The door looked a bit sad so yesterday I made this with some bits from the garden.

Let's hope that it will be safe to lift the restrictions and that your Mum will be able to see you soon.    If my memory is correct your Mum has a birthday in April so she can have a special celebration birthday then
That wreath looked absolutely beautiful Hollins, you seem to have a special creative talent when it comes to flower arranging      $good$
