The flower arranging class...Petersham Nurseries
If you are wondering what a pot of flowers is doing on a fence post..
I'll tell you, it was my perfectly imperfect attempt
at creating a flower arrangement this morning.
I am singing high praises once again for my favourite nursery,
Petersham Nurseries in Richmond, Surrey.
This morning I joined in on a Flower Arranging Workshop
which was held in one of their many greenhouses.
Tea, coffee, cakes and buckets of beautiful flowers were waiting for us.
In typical Jeanne fashion, I scribbled lots of notes,
watched the instructor intently and rushed in to start.
I cut, snipped and slid flowers into my oasis
at rocket speed and then...I noticed my mistakes.
Top heavy on the flowers, bottom heavy on the greens.
I really must remember to slow down.
No matter...I was happy to walk away with my arrangement and have a quick
look to see what's new in the shop. I think I am destined to own cafe
chairs one day. I snapped countless photos in Paris a few weeks back
and here they are again, it is a sign!
I love, love, love these lamps and photograph them each time I visit.
I must own these one day...wink, wink to Mr. H :)
My hat goes off to whoever creates these wonderful displays..they are enchanting.
I will give an extra wink to this English bird house as well.
So that was my perfectly imperfect morning.
Me and my flower pot..taking one last shot before moving on.
Speaking of perfectly imperfect...
just a reminder that I am offering this book...
as a giveaway.

Best wishes from me and my flower pot...
