In a vase on Monday – in a box!


Home from London on Thursday evening for a quick turn around and then an early get away on Friday morning.  We were heading to Bath to celebrate the OH’s big birthday with family, staying in a lovely rental house in central Bath.

Like the silly sausage I am, as well as three cakes (long story), Friday dinner and food for breakfasts, I was determined to take some flowers, and so Thursday evening saw me wandering around the garden at 10pm with a torch (in the rain), picking blooms.

I got them picked and arranged in three small vases and photo’d them (above) ready for their travels.  What I of course then forgot to do was photo them again gracing the very lovely dining table, laid for 10.

This is a photo of the table from the Bath Holiday Rentals website.  You’ll just have to imagine the blooms in situ!Dining room to seat up to 16 with stunning views over the garden

Nothing to do with blooms, but I just wanted to share, on Sunday, as a birthday treat, I took the OH and the two ‘kids’ ballooning.  I’ve never been before and we were blessed with the most glorious evening and fabulous views over Bath – including being able to spot the house we’d been staying in.

If you ever get the chance, do go, it was absolutely magical.IMG_3230

    Oh wow! It sounds like a fantastic weekend and I’m sure your night-time flower-picking efforts were much appreciated. I’ve only been in a balloon once (for my 30th, over the countryside of Cambridgeshire) and it was magical. I would love to do one around Bath – that must have been amazing, and you were so lucky with the weather. Hope your OH had a lovely birthday.

    What a wonderful weekend you must have had, Jen, and what a brilliant flat you managed to find for your family get together. Your luggage sounds a bit like ours when we go to Edinburgh in October and have our early Christmas dinner – although I haven’t yet taken flowers with me! Your blooms look lusciously rustic and autumnal, and what perfect weather you had for your balloon trip
