Nothing like a flush with a view

Blooms, blooms, blooms.

While the weather in the UK continues to leave the tip of your nose icy and the garden slightly bleak, a big old bunch of faux or real blooms can lift the spirits and provide welcome cheer. Even if you are on a January budget, take some of your existing faux flowers and rearrange them. Add a burst of colour to a different spot. I even have an arrangement in my downstairs toilet. Nothing like a flush with a view.

Actual flower power

Real flowers are one of life’s best and most beautiful luxuries. I am going to include a picture of perhaps my favourite all-time bouquet of flowers that my brothers and I bought for my parents 40th wedding anniversary. Made up by the very talented florists at Wild at Heart, the shapes and colours are just beautiful. www.wildatheart.com

I was also lucky enough to receive this beautiful display by the Urban Flower shop in Crouch End for my birthday a couple of days ago It is a complete gem of a shop with lovely staff and beautiful and unusual flowers. www.urbanflowercompany.co.uk

I love that this bouquet is sort of faded grandeur with subtle lilacs, weathered purple, greens and dotted with black berries.
