Here’s some of yesterdays arrangements , there’s a few more that aren’t on here, and I couldn’t resist the one with Rocky in it at the end..(he’s not mine ) isnt he cool.
Last night I couldn’t go to sleep and I was thinking a of all the amazing ladies I’ve meet that have come out to the workshops and shared my garden and wee home..I’ve learnt that women really are awesome, everyone of us has our own story to share, we are strong, have a fantastic sense of humour and even amongst those who have never met before there is a lovely sense of comradely and sharing.
Its definitely been something that has pushed me outside of my comfort thanks to you all for your support..its been an honour having you all …and thats a wrap for this summers workshops .

I took a bit of time out to make some dried flower bunches up for this weekends Farmers Market..its a good job to do when I’ve run out of steam to do the more physical garden stuff

I’m trying hard not to be anxious about the big storm thats coming..not sure that the flowers cant stand up to a cyclone…eek…I’ve lost loads of flower crops this season from the last big rain , so I hope this one will somehow just go away..on the plus side I’m happy to have cooler weather and know that this weeks flowers will last much better for everyone than in those awful hot days ..


I’m back at the Farmers Market tomorrow, its nice to be back


I’m loving this vase from Emma @ruiceramics ..they have so much more detail than the photo shows..and they’re a dream to use…these are hand made especially for the February workshop..(its a goodie) and there’s not many spaces left..scroll through my FB page to find the details..

all set up for todays workshop


New Workshop..The Clay Pot.. Date..February 5th..time is 8.30 - 12.30. Cost is $195.
I’m really excited about this workshop, I’ve been planning it quietly behind the scenes , its going to be a fantastic day.
I have on board 2 amazing NZ potters that are hand crafting some beautiful vases especially for this workshop.
Gisborne’s own Baye Riddell- Baye is world renowned and I feel incredibly lucky that he’s agreed to make vases for this workshop..yay..
Its doesn’t stop there I also have…
“Ruiceramics”..Emma Zhang..check her work out on instagram..her work is beautiful….
So this is cool’ll have a choice of 3 incredible nz artists and get to take home your arrangement in a stunning hand crafted vase.
For this workshop you get full reign to roam and pick from my flower picking patches, I’ll give you a quick tour and some tips for picking and then leave you to it to enjoy wandering and picking treasures for your arrangement in your vase. This is why its an earlier start..(I’m going easy on you..I usually start picking around 6 am) you dont want to out there in the heat of the day..its way too hot.
You’ll then come back for a lovely morning tea..followed by some creative floral fun with your vases..I’ll be there to help you make some gorgeous creations.
Most of all its about having a fun day out..I want you to come out to my wee bit of paradise and forget everything else and just enjoy the day.
If this sounds like you..message me and book a place..I will be limiting the size of the workshop to keep it personal .
Thanks everyone for your amazing support..I hope you’ll be as excited about this as I am..have a lovely day …..below is a pic of one of Emma Zhangs gorgeous work…( our may not be exactly like this ..but will be similar ).
