Flower Arranging

I haven't been on a flower arranging workshop for over  three months and it was wonderful to be able to spend yesterday afternoon in a little village hall half an hour or so from here, in lovely company, playing with flowers.

This month Claudine picked a lazy S style - which is one of the most difficult to do.  We all groaned - including Claudine - but we did have fun.

The arrangement took a bit of a battering on the journey home - but hey ho - I still like it.
 Brenda, our tutor, got the flowers for me from a supermarket, and I love the colours.
For some reason, the camera automatically altered this photo when I saved it!  I had to close the blinds and stand the arrangement on the floor as it is very tall and I couldn't get a proper photo of it on the table.   The sun was streaming in, so I stood it on the floor and drew the blinds - they are white not blue!

It's lovely, very 'fluid'.
It was probably named after me...Lazy S LOL!

Love the colours too.

Great arrangement Lottie.

I hate it when you take a photo and it changes all the colours, so annoying!!!

Fabulous Lottie, as I am a "plonk it in the vase" girl, I can really appreciate the work in this, certainly nothing "lazy" about the creation xxx

Lottie, I'm sorry you can't comment on my blog... I've really no clue when it comes to this stuff! I thought I'd sorted it out!
If at first you don't succeed....ask someone how! LOL!

As for being a nurse and knowing what to do, I'm the same as any one else really, I just moan more about it as I get older. Nest thing I can hear myself saying is , "I'm **yrs old you know!".
