Flowerona reflects: Anemones & Austen
The London Olympics are still very much a focus for all of us here in the UK, especially as Team GB have been totally inspiring with their medal haul.
And it’s lovely to see that so many people are interested in reading about the Victory Bouquets designed for the Games by Jane Packer.
Here’s what I’ve been up to this week…
Out & about
On Thursday afternoon, I visited RHS Wisley to capture images of their beautiful flowers for future blog posts.
