Friday saw my sister in law arriving for lunch and bringing my mother in law who was staying for the weekend.
Whilst normal people would have spent the previous evening (having arrived home at 8pm after travelling home by train with the dog following a Waterloo handover with the son!) tidying, cleaning and fretting about lunch, I concentrated on bringing some of the amazing pink abundance going on outside, inside.
The vase is a mix of roses – ‘St Swithun’, ‘Jubilee Celebration’ (and a couple of unknown ones), together with Peony ‘Sarah Bernhardt’ and Diascia personata.
I think our guests were much more impressed with the lobster lunch the OH knocked up while I was working, but I liked the flaaaars!
Just before signing off, I though I’d share last week’s similarly hued vase ‘on a desk’. Those of you who have been following for a while know that I try to take a vase of flowers to the office each week. Bearing in mind they travel by car, ferry, train and train without water, some arrive in better condition than others, but this one was fabulous. Beautifully scented and lasted really well. Almost made the day job bearable!
With thanks to Cathy who corrals all of us crazy IaVoMers. Thanks Cathy!
