birthday. Why do they keep turning up so quickly? As a child they took forever to arrive.
We went out during the morning and on our return home found that a long cardboard box had been delivered to our porch. It was very shallow, only about 3cms deep. I opened it and found that it was full of flattened, crushed fresh flowers. Inside was a note which read "hush, we are sleeping - please wake us up gently by following the instructions, and by tomorrow we will have awakened" !!!
And thus they did.
1. I love the Foxglove illustration - it is one of my favourite wildflowers.
2.The paper is made from 100﹪ recycled materials.
3. It is compostable.
4.The card is embedded with lots of seeds which includes eleven different wildflowers.
5.Wildflowers are good for bees, and good for us.
In the Spring I need to moisten it, and cover it over with a layer of compost keeping it inside until the seeds germinate. Once the seeds are established it can go outside in a sunny spot - watch this space to see what happens next year.
For a special treat we visited a lovely garden lying at the foot of the beautiful Malvern Hills. It was really lush and colourful, we loved it. I will show more of it another time.Afterwards we had a date at a charming hotel built during 1904 in the fashionable Arts & Crafts style prevelant during that period.
Here we enjoyed a delicious Champagne and High Tea treat.
When we finally departed from the hotel we were pleased that we had eaten just a light snack for our lunch.
