Soft pink vintage flowers and a blast from the past
This week the rain has been playing havoc with my cycling plans. I've had the bike all done up. It's got a new chain. The seat remains uncomfortable, but there is nothing to be done. It's one of those mountain bike ones. It's bright blue. It's functional. Sadly, it is not a classic, vintage style, black, slim framed, 'designed for ladies wearing nice dresses' one with a basket on the front for your shopping. That is the bike of my dreams. If the weather improves, I'll keep you posted on the journeys of the magical mountain bike. Until then, flowers it is. Not bad really.
Today is brought to you by the letter V. V is for vintage. It is also brought to you by the letter P. The letter P is for Peonies (British ones - their nearly done now), Pink and Pedestal. More on this below.
Christines wedding was lovely. All blousy flowers with lots of lovely textures. The peonies opened perfectly (there's another P) and the weather was warm. Christine needed it to be that way for her lovely floaty Jenny Packham number.
Here's her wedding in the final (well almost) Letter P - Pictures.
Very magical light. I rather like it. Feels a bit creative.
An urn of blooms that look simply magical. Hazel and honeysuckle feature.
Delphinium. Always provides glamourous height. The floral equivalent of Laboutins.
Flowers on film.......my old mate Bradders getting all the detail in.
I'm going to try my hand at Sweet Pea growing. Success will be blogged, lack of success will be erm......not mentioned and politely glossed over.
Pretty bridesmaids bouquet. Love it when a British Peony does you this proud.
The Jenny Packham dress was a cracker. So are these flowers. I wanted to hug it. Best not. They're pretty delicate blooms.
For the final P. Perfect.
