flowers, and more flowers…..

its funny as you get older you start to veer towards flower shops and garden centres;  nowadays there are so many lovely flower shops that offer more than the usual bouquet of flowers;  on my recent visit to manchester we popped to alderley edge and discovered the potting shed – a whole world of garden ideas, from ornaments, candles, succulents and ornamental displays;  in didsbury, living flowers sells little jars of flowers and lovely receptacles for plants;  botanique on exmouth market not only sells flowers, but artisan gifts as does the lovely darsham nurseries in suffolk – you can also get great food there.  last week i was given a beautiful gift of flowers in a jar at the launch of my book  – they were a stylish and unusual choice of flowers by jam jar flowers – and of course i had to photograph them.   of course you can’t forget the amazing wild at heart– always stylish, unusual and a pleasure to receive.  clifton nurseries also is a wonderful inspiration, plus has a cafe, all the more to visit.
