A Post without a picture

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


  1. oh you little ripper.
    love the coffee with hog... mister pig? mr sooz sounds a bit girlie - but i have had a beer and 2 glasses of pinot so that could be clouding my judgement, it is certainly playing havoc with my typos - have had a million fixits X

  2. Oh yaay you - Mr Hogg perhaps - not sure will have to come up with a code name. 007 could work. He is so cute!!! Definitely a bond man and I fancy being a bond girl. :) Have a great weekend my friend.

  3. I do love sweet peas, I remember the way they used to grow up a trellis at my parents home.

    Your job must be so lovely working with pretty flowers all day.

    Enjoy your weekend

  4. Thanks Carolyn - yes I feel as though i am pretending sometimes - there is no greater joy than doing what you love and loving what you do.
    Hugs and have a great weekend. Suzi x

  5. Stopping by from SITS. Love the flowers! I will have to come back here for ideas for my wedding next year!

  6. Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!

    Your flower photos are gorgeous!!

  7. If could be anything in the world I would be a florist. I have always toyed with that idea. I get so much joy from flower arranging. Maybe some day...

    I look forward to reading more of your blog and seeing pics of your beautiful arrangements.

    Visiting this morning from SITS.

  8. Beautiful! There are few places as pretty as a florist shop.
    Happy SITS Sharefest

  9. Sweet peas, another flower that I love. Their scent is so lovely.

    Nice that your husband can come and visit with you like that.
