The Carbon Locking Ability of Trees to Fight Climate Change

i heard on the News this evening that the ice that has melted in Antarctica since the 90’s is enough to fill The Grand Canyon. That’s scary.

I work closely with nature, the outdoors is my favourite place to be, and I love trees especially. When I look at a tree, I see strength, tenacity, history, a safe place, a life giving force….

rainbow bouquet

Rainbow colours are a popular choice for summer bouquets. It adds a fun, informal element.

Summery pinks and purples

Summery pinks and purples are also in high demand. I love the strong cerise with purple. Wrapped in brown paper and tied with a raffia bow, this hand tied bouquet is ready to pop into a vase.

I love making posies from my home grown flowers. I grow lavender, lemon balm, myrtle, wallflowers, mint and oregano. The sweet peas are just about finished, but I have a beautiful, deep purple buddleia which the butterflies love. It seems that the number of butterflies has overtaken the number of planes this summer!

We have yet another order for flowers for a marriage proposal this week. I think 2021 will be a mega busy year for weddings – and holidays abroad!
