Flowerona Reflects: sweet peas & schools

Purple-Ranunculus-Flowerona

Well, it’s been a very busy week! Here’s what I’ve been up to…

My week

Monday

A stay-at-home day…writing blog posts and dealing with emails.

Tuesday

On Tuesday afternoon, I travelled into London to meet up with Kate from Laura Ashley to talk about future blog posts for their wonderful blog.

And as I was near Regent Street, I popped into Anthropologie where I spotted these gorgeous flower vases on display!

Wednesday

On Wednesday, I attended one day of a 4-Day Intensive School at Paula Pryke’s Flower School in London.

I used to work for Paula and it was so lovely to meet up with her and her team.

And what a truly international group of floristry students there were in attendance!

In the afternoon, florist Neill Strain popped in and you can see him here with Paula and I.

Whilst I was at the school, I captured the stunning ranunculus above, and sweet peas and succulents below.

Thursday & Friday

Mainly stay-at-home days…catching up on lots of emails after having been out of the office.   Also contacted contributors for a magazine article which I’m currently writing.

It was a lovely surprise on Thursday to receive this beautiful bouquet of roses from Interflora, from their Vera Wang Floral Collection.

New Covent Garden Flower Market

My first Flower Market Report for New Covent Garden Flower Market in London went live this week.

I’ll be writing it on a monthly basis and the aim is for it to be a snapshot of the flowers, foliage, plants and sundries available at the Market each month.
