Honey I'm home - with blog candy news

I bet you didn't even notice that I had 'gone' did you?

I am just checking all my emails - 126 in just 5 days!   89 of which were kinda 'junk'!

BUT some nice news to catch up on in my - inbox - one of which was to let me know that Moira - the owner of the Happy Daze shop, had moved her blog to here  and to celebrate is giving away a £30 voucher.   Yes - a whopping £30 to spend in her fabulous online shop.

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.
