Lost and Found!

I just feel lost. I have just started a new job, moved into our villa, new fridge delivery, new juicer delivery, temporary kitchen renovation, got a cold, no internet, broken phone and I travel 2 hours to get to my work everyday on public transport! Not to mention just trying to settle back into life in Australia! People had warned me it would be tough...but did I believe them?

So sorry for my disappearing act, and unfortunately it may last until the new year as I settle in...

At least I have managed to land a sweet job with a lovely young lady in Perth. So if you are looking for bridal bouquets or just want a lovely weekly arrangement to your workplace, get in touch...I cant wait to help spread the floral beauty!!!

Daisy Chains

No internet, no phones, Plenty of surfing, fishing, blue skies, family, table tennis, ....

This weekend was pure bliss....with no distractions, I found some time to make little daisy chains with my cute niece. So glad to see that girls still love them as much as I did!

Rose delights

 I am lost in all these lovely ruffles!

I noticed that last weekend there was a 'Rose Championship' in Guildford. We thought we would drive out and check it out.

Yes, we were the only non grey haired couple their... but I was blown away by some of the amazing roses on display! This really is one of the joys of living in Perth and at this time of year these delightful blooms are everywhere....I took a million pictures and now want to start a whole area in my garden dedicated to them!

I particularly love the heritage roses and how this single family can transform themselves to look like so many other blooms...I see a peony, a poppy, a gardenia.......

feeling green

Its amazing what you can mix and match from your garden to make a fresh green arrangement... In 5 minutes I had gathered an interesting assortment of foliage, including some delicious smelling mint, and a feature of some healthy green succulents!

After making this arrangement,... I realized that when we move out in two days, I will miss Rhys' Mum's screams of delight whenever she came home to find one of these mixed bouquets in the house!

the bennetts

One of the joys of returning home is hanging out at my sisters house.

We picked the kids up from school yesterday and did some impromptu flower gathering and arranging in the backyard.

lavender and loquats

We are staying at Rhys parents house this week and they tend to keep a "food" garden full of herbs, fruit and vegetables.  With lavender, loqhats and a hint of jasmine, this little gathering smells delightful!

Good bye Toronto

Well, Rhys and I are now back in Australia, and it is time for me to say goodbye to the amazing flowers and weddings I was lucky to enjoy at Pink Twig.
I am looking forward to new and exciting flowers and events here in Australia...
