And later this month, as part of The Garden Museum in London’s online Public Programme, Simon will be talking about this wonderful photographic record of the last year at the old site of New Covent Garden Flower Market.

Instagram for Florists Online Course
Tomorrow at 9am, I’ll be re-opening registration for my Instagram for Florists online course, for the fourth time! This 6 week course will then start the following Monday. And I’m so looking forward to spending the weeks of lockdown helping the students improve their use of Instagram. It would be lovely if you’d like to join us! In advance of the course, you may like to read a mini-series which I created, Your Instagram Makeover : Part 1, Part 2 & Part 3.
Botanical Brouhaha & Girl Flower Podcasts
If you’ve not had chance already, you may like to listen to two podcasts on which I’ve recently been interviewed:
I loved chatting to Amy and Maggie at Botanical Brouhaha and Vic and Jess at Girl Flower. And thank you so much for all your comments and emails, if you’ve already been in contact after listening to our conversations.
Here in England, we went into our third lockdown this week. And yes, I’ve had my fair share of wobbly moments over the last few days. But reminding myself to take one day at a time and only worry about things I can control is helping. Regular HIIT sessions, essential oils burning in my office, walking in nature at lunchtime, a Lumie Light Box* on my desk and meditation are also helping. Please take care and keep safe.
