Flowers in the house – lilacs and rhododendrons

My mother looked after Alisi for me the other day. And sent her home with some lovely flowers from her garden.

Here are the lilacs – just gorgeous!

And some creamy rhododendrons for Alisi’s room.

Can you spot the spider?

To prove you can never start arranging flowers too soon…Here’s Alisi with her first arrangement – two daisies she picked out of the lawn.

Flowers in the house – spring buds and lemons

Being the middle of winter here, the flowers are few and far between. But we’ll soon be enjoying beautiful Spring blooms.

I regularly pass an unloved roadside tree on my afternoon walks. The poor tree has fallen over and is crowded by dark pines but is soldiering on and about to cover itself with thousands of blossoms.

I snipped these branches with buds about to pop and they precariously balanced on top of the pram for the rest of the walk home.

The lemons are from my mother’s garden. And the dish full of pebbles is courtesy of Alisi’s current pebble collecting obsession.
