I popped round to the shop this evening to pick up one or two bits and whilst I was there they reduced the flowers in the shop. I love flowers and because they are so pricey I do not very often indulge despite growing up in households where a bunch of flowers on the bureau or on a side table was the norm. In fact my grandmother had a cutting garden and there were always flowers in the house. The flowers that were reduced were pretty bunches that were £10 per bunch for three of the bunches I eventually bought and the biggest one was £20. That is in total £50 for all four bunches - it is for this reason I do not buy them as that amount of money is a lot which could do a lot more for things that we do really need. So it comes down to practicalities in the end and a conscientious decision at the end of the day to get more for my money. Its not because I do not love flowers because I do I think they cheer up a room no end.
Needless to say I am over the moon with my little treat today - its good for the soul a little indulgence now and again. I picked pinks and whites to go into the front room and yellows and blues for the dining room. Both colourways match the colours in both rooms. I shall take further pictures once I have them arranged in their vases.
And the price per bunch of flowers £1 each - so for £4 I now have £50 of flowers and I feel completely spoilt.
Catch you soon.
I have popped the flowers into vases - I am no flower arranger but I have a go. I also collect Vases that I like from Charity shops. I am particularly fond of the ones that I have used here.
They have not come out too badly and as they start to open they always give a little bit and settle down.
I am so chuffed with these.
