One Flew Over Recently...

March has been chilly but signs of Spring are emerging. 

The sweet peas we planted over winter are growing taller and stronger each day;

Our friends lucky enough to have ducks tell us the first eggs have been laid;

And after nothing much happening in the wintry garden, Oscar is suddenly glued to the promise of movement and excitement (anything small that moves and THE OTHER CAT).

At the beginning of the month we exhibited at, and were floral sponsors for, the superb A Most Curious Wedding Fair.  

(Check out last week's blog on foliage-a-plenty wedding inspiration, with photos from the various elements we decorated at A Most Curious...)

A wedding fair like no other, A Most Curious curates original and creative suppliers from London and beyond, and pops them all in a non-intimidating and super fun environment. With a bar. What's not to love?

It's possible that we got a little over excited about our pop up flower beds, cramming them full of ranunculus, anemones, lilac, mimosa, clematis, wax flower and basically anything else we could fit in! 

Plus, we got an opportunity to create an enormous, and possibly completely mad, bouquet.

Which Charlie was kind enough to model with some more bended knee bouquet shots;

Check out Helen's round up of the fair on her excellent blog The Wedding Bazaar which includes photos (rather than our terrible phone-tos!) by the bloody lovely Tasha at Ikonworks photography.

And also, Rona from the comprehensive and informative flower inspired blog Flowerona, has featured us in her Wedding Wednesday post (although PLEASE excuse how awkward we look - we genuinely cannot take a good photo. It's a serious problem...) and also featured all the florists at the fair in her Rona Reflects vlog.

Aside from the fair, we have been revelling in the delights of a new season with our weekly contracts; delicate blossom, blousy and bossy fritillaria persica, and bold pops of coloured florals.

And we even managed to squeeze in a much needed holiday each over the easter break.  

In the Lake District, THIS HAPPENED...

Oh, and finally, check out this here beauty;
