Something sweet - the delightful sweetpea - my flower of the moment
Sometimes the memory has to surfice and today was one of those days. I had great intentions of photos galore today but was over run by orders. I am pooped and nothing that a little glass of something won't fix. I had a day at the office today and what a place to work. I love it - being surrounded by flowers. 8 orders later and I was and am still loving it. To say I am being stretched is an understatement. I often look at something I have made and think " Is it ok? Are there enough flowers? Will they love it?" I hope and pray they do. It is hard to know in floristry as orders often come and are send without the sender seeing it. I suppose no news is good news some days but to hear feedback helps. I did get some lovely feedback today. Just as my head was spinning a little at the thought of doing 6 arrangements and the shop a godsend arrived in the shape of one of my Bosses friends - Kathy! Wow what a lovely soul. She just did everything I couldn't or hadn't been able to do and I was blessed. She answered phones, tidied, swept and cut flowers but most of all she gushed over the arrangements and bouquets I had made. She also delivered them which was a great help! I do feel blessed today. Mr Sooz came in to see me too - lovely to see my man in the day. We had a coffee and a chat while I arranged. I really cannot believe that I am doing this - perhaps I should pinch myself.
Tomorrow is College and back to the books. I am looking forward to not learning in a vacuum anymore but actually seeing sense in the madness. It is funerals tomorrow. A part of life and especially for a florist.
Wish I had my camera is I really did like some of the things I made today. It will have to wait for another day.
Hope all of yours were wonderful
