It’s been over a month since I updated you with what I’ve been up to. Let’s just say…since the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, my feet have scarcely touched the ground, as you’ve probably gathered by the large influx of blog posts!
There’s been a lot going on including my visit last Saturday morning to Plumpton College in East Sussex. I was there to teach a group of their floristry students how to use social media to start and grow their floristry businesses. It was so lovely to spend time with the ladies, many of whom are career changers – a trend which appears to be growing and growing.
You may also have seen that I attended a Press Event for the launch of the Miller Harris x McQueens Flowers Candle Collaboration. And I went to an event at the Garden Museum to celebrate British Flowers Week and the new book, Blooms: Contemporary Floral Design.
So, this weekend, I’ll be trying to rest and recharge! I hope you have a chilled weekend too…
