Summer Jam Jars Posy’s

Please forgive me but I’m not going to write much today and I don’t really think I need to! I’ll just let the photos do the talking. I’ve been sitting at the computer most of the weekend trying to finalise my new branding for the website, letterheads, business cards, stamps and stickers. And still there is a way to go. New photos to go up, update the website text the list goes on and on. But what do you think so far?

But back to these (I think) gorgeous flowers! This is the latest tutorial with Emma from A Quiet Style where I turned up with a bucket of flowers; mostly from Upper Lodge and mine cutting garden (thank you Corina!) only the Peonies weren’t home-grown.

I wanted to show Emma with just a few brought flowers and a bit of slipping from your garden and using different heights with bottles and jam jars, you can create something really impactful.

I hope you think it is as pretty as I do?

    Meadow flowers and a Hedgerow Chair back

    I love meadows, it’s true! I love them in the morning with tiny droplets of due making them shine like silver in the sunlight and showing up all the delicate cobwebs. I love them on long warm evenings, when the heat of the day is still in the grass and you can lie on your back and listen to the skylarks.

    church_cow_parsleyI love the mix of wildness and flowers, its perfection to me.

    My love affair with meadows started when I worked at Great Dixter and I was lucky enough to walk in the morning dew and the long evenings in the world-famous Meadow and Gardens.

    At this time of year the meadows they seem to take over the hedgerows and verges along our roads and lanes and this inspired me to show Emma from A Quiet Style how to make a Meadow inspired chair back. I hope you find time to read how you make one on Emma’s blog.

    I thought I would quickly show you one of my favourite designs that I love to do, a Meadow in a box.

      Hand-tied Bouquet Workshop

      I’ve been meaning to put this post up for over a week now but once again time is running away with me.
      I wanted to share with you today some of the images and feedback from my hand tied workshop that I ran last week at the beautiful Upper Lodge.

      We started the day with coffee and tea, some gorgeous home-made drizzle cake and chocolate cookies.

      I wish I had had time to take photos of the flowers, the home-made aprons and little notebooks that we used but I was having too much fun to think about it.

      happy day at the hand-tied bouquet workshop
