Can't quite believe it's June tomorrow. Who would have thought time would fly so quickly when you're off work, at home, trying to prevent two small people from going totally feral (Mr vanilla rose commented this evening that our daughter looked like an extra from Mad Max). As much as I'm missing the day job, also loving this extra time with them ( most of the time...) Reminding myself of some of the stuff we did last May. Looking forward to doing more of this stuff next May!

I love peonies. Love, love, love them. Love their big, soft, frilly old petals. Love the amazing range of colours. Love the fact they have such a short season - makes them all the more special. They are awesome. They are also incredibly annoying little buggers.
When I order peonies for a wedding or an event, I always order about 30% more stems than we anticipate using. Because, while some will arrive in full bloom, at their very best for a couple of days before they start to shed petals, others will be such tight little bullets, it's impossible to believe they will ever open into those big fat heads!
Ten days ago this little lady arrived as a bullet. A nice warm spot in the sun and she's just about to open. Worth the wait ♥️

We should have been flowering up 3 weddings this week! All have been postponed to either this autumn (fingers still crossed...) or next year. We did however get these 3 beauties out, among others, which made me feel a whole lot better!

When your little jar of off-cuts is as lovely as this, you know you've got some pretty gorgeous flowers going out this weekend. Never has it felt so exciting to get an order in. Thank you @therealflowerco and @fleura_metz_glasgow .
Yes, those are sweet potatoes in the background. Still doing the veggie boxes during covid times. Sweet potatoes are also lovely but less easy to shove in a vase.

Just love the bouquet you made up certainly brightens a dull day. Thanks.
I thought they were your bald headed friends lurking in the background 🤪
I was just quoting for a wedding @hotelduvinglasgow - for this September, we're keeping the faith (and fingers crossed!), and looking back over Amy and Kelly's gorgeous day at the same venue 2 1/2 years ago, made all the more beautiful with a bit of snow.

On my way back from a very soggy run this morning I stopped to snaffle these little fellas from a neighbour's field. Bluebells, cow parsley, some grassy type stuff and a couple of bits I've no idea about.
I used to spend a fortune on vases when all I really needed was an empty medicine bottle!
Enjoy flowers, simply.

We're getting a flower order in!!!! The excitement at VR HQ!!!
It's been 8 weeks since we ordered flowers - and it feels much longer. We've been getting enquiries as to when we'll be able to deliver bouquets again, with lots of people missing their loved ones during lockdown. Well the wait is over people!!!
And it's not just any old flower order. We're getting our delivery from the fabulous guys @therealflowerco - all kinds of gorgeous stuff grown on their very own farm in England, with a few fairtrade roses thrown in from their farm in Kenya (not throw, that would be very bad....).
Our delivery bouquets start from £35 with free local delivery, it's only a small order coming in and when when they're gone, they're gone. Please get in touch if you'd like to send a bouquet. Happy Friday, all!

There are some brilliant (and free!) online floristry tutorials at the moment. Make the most of them if you can and you're interested. However, if like me you're still attempting to engage in some kind of fruitful employment, trying to discourage two small persons from turning completely feral while they're off school/nursery for an extended period, and have decided that this is definitely the year to finish painting the outside of the house, then you may not feel this is your time to be acquiring new skills. So, grab a tulip, a bit of broom, couple of bluebells and some senecio. Pop them in an empty soy sauce bottle. Play with colour, height, textures. Enjoy flowers, simply.
