eucharis,fern,lilly of the valley.snowberry & cherry brandy

Morning, I've had a couple of well needed days off, leaving the lovely gals Dawn and Caroline in the shop, creating enchantment no doubt....I'll be off on a road trip right this very minute, we're heading up to one of our favourite venues, The Lodge, I love the drive up there, through devils elbow, sounds scary & it can be, esp if you're like me and pay more attention to the flora & fauna than the road..have had a few close calls..  ..the setting is a photographers dream..I'll pop some pics on later...Tatty bye

It's been awhile since we know how it is, somedays you're just chasing your tail!..we got these gorjus sapphire blue, sooooooooooo nice...but...those wee buds at the base of the stem that are so fragile..well I wasn't careful wth them!! so they ended up on the plate...sometimes when things go wrong it's the right thing xxxxxxx
