There are positives and not so positives to everything.. . . I love our beech tree. In fact I spent quite a bit of time protecting him but thats another tale. He is big and old and a rather handsome shape. And don't ask me why but he is a he! His amazing branches are collected when blown down and used for many things. Autumn bouquets pea supports and our wild garden style wreaths to name a few as well as excellent kindling to start our fire. . He is cloaked in all his autumn splendour right… Beech Tree, Fall Bouquets, Garden Styles, Branches, Handsome, Fire, Wreaths, Autumn, Shape

2020 is the year I learned..... . . ......how to wash my hands properly and then like everyone got far too much practice.. . . What I dont think you can ever have far too much practice at though is any creative endeavour. In our cutting garden new beds have been created and are blooming this Autumn.

Dahlias - Top tips now the data is in..  Treat them mean to keep them keen is my finding. This is an oft used phrase when discussing affairs of the heart and while I am not too sure about its guidance on that subject it does stand scrutiny with our dahlias. . . Next year then no time or soil will be spent potting dahlias up. The dahlias will be in the ground late April with a fleece copper rings and a liberal sprinting of egg shells .

Here is a Monday morning jug of joy for you.... . . . As our little staycation extends sneakily into today I thought it would be good to just plonk these roses in one of my old french pitchers with its matching browns and honeyed yellows on the kitchen table. Because it looks just like the sunrise this morning as August ripens into late summer.  . . .

Its a totally tangerine sort of Sunday.  .  . The sun is shining (in fact its a scorcher) and this weekend we are having a slight staycation.  . . .But its dahlia season and I still had to cut these Totally Tangerine  and Salmon Runner dahlias which are growing their socks off in the cutting garden and nodding in the gentle summer breeze.

Looking for Trevor..or the dahlia formerly known as David Howard . . There is the perpetual question of labelling for dahlias. The dahlia label is a thing of myth and legend. You need the label to be sturdy enough to see out the summer then sufficiently robust to be readable by the end of the winter . . More often than not there is disappointment at either or both ends of the season. Surely I can hear you cry not at the end of summer when you can still see the flowers?

Some floral inspiration for the start of the working week.. . . In my previous role there was always a push back for us to have resilience. That word keeps returning to my mind now.  Truthfully I used to think it was just another way for my global employer to keep us all going. Now I think of it as a gift.  . . Finding purpose can be tricky. Taking time to look after yourself including enough sleep and rest well thats challenging sometimes but can be done.

I made a flower crown at my virtual class on Friday.. . . This is a picture of another one though with my favourite everlasting dried flowers.
