It's that time of the month again.............

Oh how I have missed going to our monthly flower arranging get together.
It's such fun and well worth the journey.

Did you get to see Chelsea Flower Show last week?
I only watched it on TV and it was great.

This arrangement is a mix of English country garden foliage - hosta leaves and conifer.
With a touch of the hot colours of Gerbera, exotic Proteas which always look as though they are not of this world, and cooling carnations.
Framed with aspidistra leaves.
Not the best place to photograph it, right in front of a window, but my space is limited as we have some work going on indoors at the moment.

The colours in real life are much more vibrant and contrasting - it makes me smile just looking at it.

I love your flower arranging. When I go to a County Show I always head for the flower arranging tent. I bet you'd win 1st prize.

These photos are wonderful--the arrangement of those amazing flowers is just exquisite. They quite fill my eyes--which is the greatest compliment I can give.
