A Basket of Fresh Garden Flowers




Early this morning I headed out into our garden which is currently in full bloom.  I spent about 20 minutes in pure heaven collecting this basket of fresh flowers for Black & Spiro.  It has been so great having lots of vases of fresh garden flowers in the shop over these past few weeks.  As you have probably guessed I am a little bit obsessed with fresh flowers.  Maybe if I decide to give up decorating I could just grow and sell pretty bunches of fresh garden flowers...I'd really love that.

Your store seems to be a flower garden!...but if you do decide to try another flowery career you will be fabulous!

I can't believe they're all from your garden! Certainly puts my cement slab poor excuse for a courtyard to shame! Thank goodness for Granny and her beautiful garden!

Our garden is struggling to shine at the moment. Some heavy duty rainfall would help. Do you spend a lot of time maintaining yours?

Anna, I live down the road from your store in New Farm. We were going for an evening stroll the other week and I thought, "Did I just smell flowers??" The amazing smell of the huge bunch of fresh white lilies in your window was wafting through your closed doors onto the street!
