I feel like a girl coming back from her holidays, with home work not up to scratch, just full of excuses for entering her work a day late. Whereas Head Prefect Cathy, on her blog: Rambling in the Garden, has prepared the props, knows the name of her flowers, and has got her 'In a Vase on Monday' project in on time, with a great title Baby Face.
My Excuses: Just back from holiday, the garden suffered in the heat, I have tooth ache and am going to the dentist today, I have had loads of washing and ironing to do, I have not had time to look up the proper names of the flowers, and there are more!
Why I am posting this? Well these flowers deserved to be shown off, it was my cousin's birthday whilst I was away, and I have got into the habit, for far away friends and family, of making a bouquet from the garden with them in mind, and then sending them an email with an attachment, and then taking the bouquet to someone local who needs a 'pick me up'. I picked the fern leaves because in Mauritius everyone who cherished little areas of deep cool shade would have some ferns growing, and I remember Georgette's Mum smelling of scented powder, hence the roses and lavender.
Well I am late with the bouquet email too.....Shall I go into detention and write some lines? Well I deserve to...but maybe weeding, dead heading and tying up will be more productive. As part of detention later in the week, I shall look up flowers names and add them.
The bouquet will be dropped off at Roz's who has just had an operation, and is back home recovering.
