On the occasion of my 27th Wedding Anniversary, I posted some roses in the silver rose bowl my sister and I bought for our parents’ 25th Wedding Anniversary,
Two years later, with no silver polish in the house, I’ve put roses in some ‘silvered’ pots from Sarah Raven (which thankfully stay untarnished!)
I’ve displayed them on the long outside table which has just been re-oiled after an offsite makeover. The table was made originally over five years ago from a huge slice of oak we watched being chainsawed off the trunk. Over time, as the wood dried, the surface became very domed such that balancing anything in the centre became a rather perilous affair. My dear husband of 29 years (today) recently persuaded the woodyard to come and take the table top away and slice off the offending lump, and hence I can now arrange flowers along the middle without fear of wobble. Thanks Andrew!
