At this time of year it is possible to sit out and actually eat a lunch in the fresh air if you so desire. The days are balmy and rich with heady perfumes. The air is just as heavy with pollen seeking bees and other flying delights. Gardens are so critical for the household that puts out massive vases of floral displays. There is no doubt that the cost of replacing the garden supply of flowers by a bought in service would make it too expensive to continue. the house where I volunteer regularly has a member of staff who was trained and worked for years as a florist and flower aranger. My goodness wha a fantastic talent that is. Every time I’m on duty in the top part of the house, where the family rooms are, the gushing praise from the public is wonderful to share!
