So it actually happened, we appeared in the Mail On Sunday You magazine.
All 4 pages of us, it is a strange thing to see your home in print, I bought 4 copies in the newsagents, to pop through various family members doors - we all live within 2 minutes of each other, we are the modern day Walton's.
Miss P. "I am buying 4 copies because we are in it"
Newsagent lady "Do you need any stamps or top-ups?"
Everybody round here is so impressed.
Then the emails started, with questions about interior decorating, The Hound, flowers, weddings, and all manner of things. a lot were asking the same thing, so i though we might cover them in one big post. Let us know if you have a question, and on Friday The Hound and I will answer them.
Other things that happened yesterday, after a brunch The Mother Hen and I went to open gardens, where i was reassured by the sight of their sweetpeas, that mine might not be completely inept this year. Mine seem so far off flowering, or even reaching the top of the willow wigwam. This time last year, we had jam jars of them.
and then i bought some plants from the plant sale, more geraniums, the leaves work so beautifully in bridal bouquets and buttonholes. and we took tea, because that is the best bit of an open gardens.
In other news, it wasn't until 3 people booked for the Flower school, that i realised the new dates were up. It is a full day course now, with lots of flowers, instruction, things to take home, cake, The Hound, go and have a look, and email us for a booking form.
Bravo to Messers Hamilton and Button, a McLaren 1,2 2 races in a row, how we danced.
