Beach Cottage Flowers and Floristry
Mon 3rd, Aug, 2015
Hello, happy Monday, phew busy weekend of painting and DIY – am in the Summer Room, the sun is shining and I’ve been on a nice long walk with Barls and mr bc this morning down by the sea…feels like Winter is on the way out…had a couple of nice warm days here and it’s feeling very very welcome.
Right now we have one cold tap in the whole of house, that would be the shower tap…we are also down to one toilet that doesn’t really work that well, have had no electricity all morning and have no working kitchen…am strangely calm about the whole thing (won’t last). However we do have some of the kitchen units painted (white) and in position and awaiting the plumber (he’s good) tomorrow. Today is electricians in the bathrooms.
In spite of all that there are flowers. Flower always brighten one’s life do they not?
This is my first hand-tied posy (not as easy as it looks) – we were supplied everything so I couldn’t choose colours etc (lilac/purple my next least fave colour after orange, worse is that orangey purply red euuuuh) and spent a module of the course watching the tutor make building a hand-tied posy look very very easy.
I’ve immediately realised in this course and what’s gone so far, that I like casual flowers and everything a bit more haphazard (like one’s brain) and although this is using the creative side it also requires much skill in design, symmetry etc. Feel like am missing this lobe in brain but will continue on in search of new higher creative self.
Yes so this is the formal posy I made, but around and about I have been practising much less structured, more casual arrangements (see on instgram if interested).
I’ll be back with the kitchen progress.
