Napoleon Bona-Cat and the Royal Wedding

Sounds like a Book I should write someday…

Hi Everyone!! Long time no Blog but, but, it IS the wedding season y’know ha! Bear with me on this okay…
So – did we all watch the Royal Wedding yesterday? How gorgeous was that and sooo lucky with the weather. I thought the flowers created by Philippa Craddock were totally stunning, the scale of them took my breath away. Just Gorgeous. I kept going right up to the tv so I could see what flowers she’d used - if anyone else had been here I’d have been getting right in their way ha!
Anyways, enough of all that, let me tell you what’s been happening here…
Our Lilly Cat is doing GREAT but she does, at every given opportunity, like to point out that she did  have to have blood tests done and she did  have to have her fur shaved… See the little footy foot pointedly pointing forward? Just so’s you know and don’t forget says Lilly….

She’s found her favourite overnight spot is on our James’s Deluxe Chocolate Fur Beanbag funnily enough…
During the day both Harls and Lils head rapidly for the first unmade bed they can find ( which isn’t difficult in my house this time of year ha! ) and make themselves comfy.. especially Harley…nothing like a cool wall, in hot weather, is there eh for coolin’ yer bits and bobs….
And when the cushion gets a bit too warm, just fluff up a spare Birman and use that instead…

On the Florista side of things I’ve been ordering in lots of new items – everything from Beaded Lace Trims from the States ( ooh Yum! ) and Natural Plant Dyed Silk Ribbons artisan made in the UK (Oh LUSH ! ) through to extra vases, tealights and wood slices. There’s been a lot of labels to soak off but at least the sun’s been shining and I have a lovely view from the window :)


I sat outside after one long vase-label-washing-off session with a cup of tea and a few Oreo’s, as you do, and thought to myself that I could do with a few more plants for the garden…
So I popped to the local Garden Centre where I had a bit more thinking to do over a coffee, in the sunshine, about what I was going to buy...

And how gorgeous the flowers were. And how I want to use more rooted, living flowers in my floral works this year. It’s something I’ve always done but I’m really thinking I could up the balance a bit more between cut stem flowers and living plants. I did a wedding a few years ago where we used rooted Clematis plants in full flower in a balcony display. They looked fabulous and the couple got to take them home afterwards and plant them in the garden. Love it.
Now, back to my garden… 

A good afternoon was had potting up and planting out and we thought we’d get out the parasols for the first time since last year as it was so hot… The Husb bravely delved into the depths of the small shed ( I won’t go there, too many SPIDERS urgh!! Yuk!!! ) and got them out… Opened them up… And aah.. oh… um.. ( by this stage we are Grumpy Husb )… We’ve had a bad attack of the Mousies! Oh lol, haha, well never mind, I quite like that little patch of blue sky up there…
So…while all this has been going on a certain Big Blonde has found his way into Studio 2…

And made himself at home on my chair…
Moving himself around now and then to catch the breeze…

And just look at that little face… 

Is it just me or does he look a bit Napoleon Bonaparte-y? Ha ha! 
Happy Days :)
xx Have a  GLORIOUS SUNDAY  Everyone ! xx
