The Museum of Floral Culture in Bangkok

It’s not every day you bump into an internationally renowned floral designer with royal & top brand commissions but I did just that unwittingly whilst in Bangkok in January 2018. And there Sankul Interkul was sitting making an outrageously beautiful violet & dusky pink floral art piece for Her Majesty Queen Mother Sirikit of Thailand….’ooooo’ […]

Snowdrop weekend at Old Church House, Long Marston.

Not just snowdrops of course, which would be a bit bland, but iris, crocus & cyclamen. Also on offer was a church tower, mulled wine & flapjack. Not bad for a cold, grey winter’s day eh? The Old Church House is Long Marston near Tring in Herts just a few miles from where I live […]

Adventures in Boots by Helen Reeley Last month was quite special-I got married. Yes! Fancy, an old bird like me getting married.
