In a vase on Monday – and now one for a lady

In contrast to last’s week’s vase, this one was for a female host, and one I’d never met.  She and her husband had invited the OH and me to join them at their golf club in Hampshire for their 125 year anniversary celebrations and were then putting us up overnight.  It seemed to me this called for the big guns, and here they are – gorgeous girly, blousy Sarah Bernhardt peonies.IMG_1095

These were joined by fresh green foliage of Euphorbia and mint,IMG_1097

as well as an inherited rose (in the background), Verbena bonariensis,IMG_1098

yet more Winter Sun sweet peas from the greenhouseIMG_1096

and spires of Veronica.IMG_1099

I’m delighted to say that the event, our hosts and the bouquet’s reception were fabulous! You really can’t go wrong with home grown flowers.IMG_1100
