I hope you’ve had a great week.
There’s still been lots of sunshine here in the UK, interspersed with a few thundery showers and some much needed rain for our gardens.
Here’s what I’ve been up to…
On Monday, I went to the beautiful city of Bath to visit the Tallulah Rose Flower School.
I was there to teach their floristry students all about social media. We covered Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and blogging.
It was lovely to see Rachel, the founder of the school, and spend time with her new intake of students on the Four Week Career Course.
I’m looking forward to following their floral journeys…and am so impressed by the progress some of them and past students have already made with setting up social media accounts to promote their floristry businesses.
Whilst I was in Bath, I couldn’t resist capturing this colourful bicycle adorned with flowers, positioned in the centre of the city to promote a local business…
Mainly stay-at-home days…writing blog posts, editing images, using social media and finally getting to the bottom of my email inbox by Thursday lunchtime (phew!)
On Friday morning, I was up bright and early to go to New Covent Garden Flower Market to take photos and talk to the traders for my monthly reports.
The first image in today’s post is of some wonderful teasels which I spotted on Porters Foliage stand.
