The Book

002 007 009

People ask to see ‘The Book’.  I assume other florists have Book’s.  Not quite sure what’s in them.  How does it work?  Do they have seasonal books and always buy the same flowers day in day out?

Anyway, last week we had the pleasure of making funeral designs.  Designed for them.  They wanted lots of smaller white flowers, soft and naturalistic, nothing tropical, no giant leaves.  The freesia has been hugely misbehaving (or just plain refusing to open) in the cold weather.  But that aside, it was a complete privilege to be able to create this.

There was a piper, and a fish and chip van.  And I even managed to find the church, despite Google’s best efforts.  A chat with a vicar from the wrong church, thankfully he knew the church I was looking for. It had been his local Weightwatchers. I’m guessing he hadn’t been for a while.
