The excitement then the wait...

By becca

I first visualised this bouquet when I walked into the tunnel on Mothering Sunday.  I'd gone in to pick a few flowers for the 'afternoon tea table' and was hit by the most beautiful coral orange rannunclus and peach toned tulips.  I did for a minute contemplate making this arrangement then and there....but I'm not sure being late for Mums lemon drizzle cake would have made me very popular! 

So this afternoon in the warm spring sunshine I boiled in the tunnel plucking these blooms and created this bouquet.

With the addition of blossom and the hellebores which are now nicely hardened off these blooms made my knees wobble a bit.  It's days like today when I'm not caked in mud, cold, and aching that I realise how much I love my job! 

Enjoy...
