I’ve been thrilled this week by the wonderful community that Flowerona is attracting online…
Thank you so much to everyone for taking the time out of their busy days to give their advice!
Here’s what I’ve been up to…
It’s been very much a stay-at-home week…writing blog posts, editing images, using social media, contacting advertisers, brainstorming ideas for magazine features and generally catching up with everything.
I also compiled and sent out my quarterly Flowerona newsletter on Thursday.
If you’d like to sign up to receive the next issue, simply go to my About page, scroll down to the bottom and fill out the two boxes.
On Friday afternoon, I popped to a local garden centre called Garsons in Esher, where they also have a ‘Pick Your Own’.
Not only do they grow fruit and vegetables, but also sunflowers and sweet peas! That’s where I took the photos above and below.
My sweet peas are currently sat in a vase on my desk and I keep on getting a ‘waft’ of their stunning scent!
And the sunflowers are brightening up our kitchen…
