Flowerona reflects: farms & florists
I hope your week has gone well and if you’re in the UK, you’ve been enjoying the beautiful weather we’ve been having, coupled with longer daylight hours.
The last seven days have been a little less frantic for me and I’ve managed to catch my breath…
Out & about
Last Saturday, I went to Sarah Raven‘s Perch Hill Farm for a wonderful day out…all will be revealed in my blog post on Monday.
Here are a few shots of our time there. The camellias were nearly over but lots of their rhododendrons were in full bloom.
Wrote blog posts and dealt with emails, then met up with a florist friend. She’d been at New Covent Garden Flower Market when it opened at 3am that morning, made up contract flowers for offices and restaurants, then delivered them.
Needless-to-say, she needed a cup of very strong coffee when we met up in the afternoon!
Also on Monday, I was delighted to be featured on Judy Heminsley’s website, How to Work from Home.
Spent the rest of day writing blog posts and dealing with emails.
Wednesday, Thursday & Friday
Three days where I was predominantly at home, dealing with lots of emails and writing blog posts.
I also started putting together my very first Flowerona newsletter which will be going out early next week.

I’m delighted to announce that this week my first guest article for the New Covent Garden Flower Market website was published.
It featured my visit to the National Wedding Show. At the show, I took photos of the stands which the flower market florists had created in the Designer Flower Zone.
Part 2 will be appearing in due course.
