Friday Flowers – Narcissi, the 1st blooms in my garden

Yellow Narcissi

Today certainly is a happy Friday. I have just discovered the first flowers to bloom in my garden. They are of course the old faithful bulbs of the Narcissi. I was delighted to see this tiny spot of bright yellow shining through my misty window and I had to go outside into the cold immediately to investigate. And there it was, only about six flowers, beautifully opened and wet with the early morning rain. I gave into temptation and picked a few to bring inside.
As they are so tiny I just used a small old sherry glass as a vase to put them in. I bought this vase years ago at a charity shop, there was just the one glass. I liked the lime green and the curvy shaped stem so much. At first I thought what on earth am I going to do with just one odd glass, but it has since come in very handy to hold small flowers or single stems.

My sofa crush.

I just can’t stop thinking about this gorgeous sofa I have recently seen. Every time I look at it I see something different, I think it has already captured my heart. The ‘My Beautiful Backside Sofa’ is an example of flamboyant and elaborate design. I am fascinated by the floating cushions in different sizes, a totally fearless design idea, the shades of blue is a smart choice as it’s classic yet fresh and very on trend. The details are excusite with elegant walnut legs, capped with copper feet.
This beauty is one of the latest design collaboration by Moroso, Italian furniture manufacturers, and is now available through official stockist, Nest.co.uk +44 (0) 114 2433000

Hello world, my 1st post!

Flowers, what a good place to start. As it says in my ‘About’ section, I’m “Passionate about interiors, flowers & dogs (not necessarily in that order). So it’s only apt that my first post should be about flowers. The idea is to have a Friday Flowers post, obviously on a Friday, but as it is Saturday already and I have missed the boat, I thought, hey this is my blog, I’ll do it anyway today. Besides, I couldn’t resist these heavenly scented hyacinths and just had to share the joy that spring flowers bring to your home and the colour injection they add during this time of year.
