Flowerona Reflects: agapanthus & answers

I hope you’ve had a lovely week…

Here, in the UK, the roads and trains seem to be a little bit quieter than normal, possibly due to people taking time off before their children go back to school next month.

Here’s what I’ve been up to…

My week

Monday

On Monday morning, I was up bright and early to go to New Covent Garden Flower Market.

When I woke at about 4.45am it was still dark outside, a sign that our summer is starting to come to an end…but thankfully by the time that I walked to the train station at 5.30am, it was light.

Above are beautiful British agapanthus which I saw on the Pratley stand.  And below are stunning, scented Creme de la Creme roses which were on Dennis Edwards‘s stand.

Rest of the week

Mainly stay-at-home days in the office…writing and answering emails, editing images, writing blog posts and guest blog posts, plus using social media.

On the Laura Ashley blog, I wrote and compiled a blog post about one of my very favourite flowers, the peony.

So, I hope you have a lovely Saturday.  I’ll be back tomorrow with Flowerona Links.
