Regular readers of my blog will know how much I love fresh flowers. I am not fussy, any kind of flowers or foliage will do, they bring such a fresh happy feel to a space. At certain times of the year, I am surrounded by plenty of foliage, at other times I have to buy flowers to fill the void.
So when a little over a week ago, I was tagged in an Instagram post looking for bloggers to receive a delivery of flowers, I naturally put my hand up happily. Last Thursday, after possible the worst work day ever……
Yep, that’s our chippie Dan, and the contents of his trailer all over the road, both it and his ute are a right off. Our young labourer was also coming down the hill at the time the water truck lost control, and it narrowly missed taking him out. Unfortunately, I think we scared him that much, he’s not coming back to work for us. So a bad week, just got worse. (Don’t forget we are still off alcohol :()
We had just arrived home, when a delivery man rung the door bell. I cannot explain the excitement I felt when he presented me with a box.
I must say, in my lifetime I have been quite spoilt, I have taken delivery of many gorgeous bunches of flowers. This however, was the very first time they had been delivered in a box. What a fantastic way to guarantee their freshness and to prevent the blooms from being squashed.
Within the box, my flowers laid in simple, stunning wrapping, already for me to play with. I am a real fan of receiving a bunch of flowers to then arrange as I like, rather than a bouquet.
My flowers were sent to me by the gorgeous Elli from Flower Haul.
