Hello Sunshine!

Francesca Sharp Flowers top tips for the sunshine
Daffodils remind me of the sun, especially on a day like today

What a glorious day to wake up to this morning! It is such a relief to finally see the sunshine and as I opened my curtains the Spring flowers smiled back at me as they reached upwards to soak up the early morning rays.

The flower beds are starting to come to life and are full of the promise of the wonderful season to come. My diary has been full of wedding planning over the last few weeks and I have met lots of lovely couples that are planning their big day this year.

The rustic country wedding look is still proving very popular with brides and my head is buzzing with images of hand tied bouquets filled with favourite flowers such as peonies, roses, lavender and fresh herbs to evoke the sense of an English country garden. 

I have also been planning my Spring displays at Applegarth Farm Shop and Holybourne Shop and Post Office now that all the bulbs have come in to bloom.

I have a bumper crop of narcissi that are looking beautiful this year. I am mixing these with other seasonal blooms and herbs to create some beautiful table centrepieces in traditional terracotta pots alongside some smaller arrangements in jam jars. Combined on a mantlepiece or on a Spring dining table  these look absolutely stunning and are proving very popular as gifts this year. 

Spring Flower Arranging Workshop by Francesca Sharp Flowers
Spend the morning in the garden at my Spring workshops

If your garden is starting to fill with flowers and you would like to know how to make the most of them and create beautiful bouquets of your own then why not join me for my Spring flower arranging workshop on 26th and 27th April. I will be running both workshops from my garden if the weather is kind to us and in the kitchen if it is not!

Come along from 10am to 12:30pm and learn how to cut, condition and arrange your flowers to make a unique display to take home with you. The cost is just £40 each and includes all of your materials and flowers as well as some delicious cakes and tea and coffee to keep you refreshed during your creative morning.

Bring some friends or just come along for some ‘me’ time after the busy Easter period, there is nothing more relaxing than a morning filled with flowers and the sounds and scent of Spring.
