Flowerona Reflects: narcissi & notes

Narcissi-Flowerona

Firstly, I would like to say a huge ‘Thank You’ to everyone who has read Flowerona this year.

In January, I achieved my highest ever monthly page views since I started the blog back in December 2010…and I’m really thrilled!

Thank you so much for all your support.

My week

Monday

On Monday, I was up at 4.50am as I needed to go to New Covent Garden Flower Market to take photos and make notes for my first monthly Flower Market Report.

There was such a wonderful buzz there.  And it was lovely to bump into florists Simon Lycett and Simon from Euphoric Flowers.

I spotted the beautifully scented ‘Paper White’ narcissi above and bought these stunning purple anemones below.

Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday

All were mainly stay-at-home days…editing images, writing blog posts and dealing with emails.

I popped out to the gym for Zumba and Pilates classes, plus met up with friends one afternoon for a cuppa and home-made chocolate brownies.

Below you can see how the anemones looked in bloom later in the week. The texture of their petals reminds me of velvet…
