I needed to pick up a gift for a lovely lady who had recently done us a favour and I decided flowers would be the perfect way to say thank you. I chose some flowers from a wonderful, friendly local florist in pastels that had lots of buds ready to open over the next week or so. They came with a reservoir of water and wrapped in florist paper. To give the flowers a personal touch though I removed the florist paper, added some bunches of tiny flowers from the garden to fill it out and then wrapped it in burlap and tied it up with vintage lace. It looks very country and feminine, I think, do you?
