This week’s ‘Flowerona reflects’ has a little bit of an Easter theme…
Here’s what I’ve been up to…
Out & about
Wrote blog posts and dealt with emails. Also spent some time with a friend showing her how to make a hand-tied bouquet.
Sent out my first Flowerona newsletter which you can view here. Many thanks to everyone who’s already subscribed.
I’ll be sending it out on a monthly basis with floral-inspired news, and will be including exclusive content and previews of what’s coming up on Flowerona.
If you’d like to sign up for next month’s, simply go to my About page, scroll down to ‘Subscribe to our mailing list’ and simply fill in your name and email address.
In this month’s newsletter, I announced that I now have a Facebook page which you can see below. If you’d like to ‘Like’ me, that would be lovely.
Also, I went to see my physio, who I’ve been seeing for the last six months, and she said that I can stop doing my twice daily exercises for my inner ear/balance problem! She’s happy that I’ve ‘recalibrated’ everything. I’m so delighted…
In the morning, I wrote blog posts and dealt with emails. Then in the afternoon, I went to meet up with Levine who runs La Maison des Roses, a wonderful florist shop in London.
Her Easter window display was absolutely beautiful, as you can see from the pictures below…
It was such a pleasure to meet Levine and spend time in her shop. I’ll be featuring an interview with her in the weeks to come.
Wrote blog posts and finally managed to get on top of all the emails in my inbox!
It was a beautiful day in Surrey, so I spent the morning in the garden pottering and then in the afternoon, hubbie and I went for a lovely walk around the woodland gardens in Bushy Park.
Here are a few photos…
