Here in the northern hemisphere we are at that time of the year where we need a serious dose of colour and floral softness. Today my desk is coloured with roses. The great thing about flowers is that they don’t have to be sophisticated or complicated. With the garden still in winter mode, and able to offer little more than greenery, this is the time when I’m grateful for good florists who keep their store well stocked with temptation in all colours.
These beautiful parma roses came home with me this week and I love the way their colour plays against the soft pink of the tarnished copper bowl.
To add a little movement to the bouquet, I trimmed a couple of wavy tendrils from a honeysuckle in the garden and cut the roses fairly short , so they nestle against each other rather than standing straight.
On another note, several people have emailed me saying they are having problems leaving comments on the blog. We apologise, but we can’t work out where the issue lies. If you don’t manage to leave a comment, maybe you’d be kind enough to send me an email saying which browser you are using and whether you have tried clearing your cache – thank you for your help!
I hope that you had a great weekend and that, like me, you’ll find a way to add a little colour to your week ahead.
