10 top blog posts for 2015

I’ve had such a lovely break over the festival period and am raring to go in 2016 – I’ve decided that my motto this year is going to be “I dare”.  So watch this space!

Other than refocusing my business energies and reflecting on my work-life balance I’m not making any specific new year’s resolutions.  I have however, enjoyed a period of looking back at my most popular blog posts over last year.

What was your favourite – and what would you like more of?

  1. Rather apt for this time of the year – my post on my favourite spring flowers made the hit list. I love that photo of the daffodils in the blue basket. It was very much inspired by the photography course I took with Emily Quinton at Makelight.


  1. Ideas for Easter decorating was also popular – which makes me smile, as I’m about to dismantle my Christmas decorations and come up with a better idea for storage and easy access. Last year the Christmas cards and perpetual advent calendar went into the loft last, so that I could easily find them at the end of November.

Happy Easter

  1. Bluebells from a walk in May illustrated the story of my word for 2015, which was “to plan”. By chance we’ve just been out with the same crowd of friends – dog walking at Perry Wood, followed by a spot of al fresco cooking on the camper stove, with mulled wine.Bluebells at Eastling


  1. This blog was actually written in the summer of 2014, just after cousin’s weekend at our place. I got in a pickle with scheduling it and I came across it months and months later!  It seems that a bit of DIY flower arranging advice is always welcome.

  1. In the heat of the summer we spent many an evening enjoying the solitude of the beach down at Seasalter. It was so lovely just to take some time to stop and see the beauty of our natural surroundings.

  1. It was a story from the classroom in April. Teaching is definitely not a one-way street. I am constantly inspired by the ladies who come to class and so willingly dive into the unknown and discover something new about themselves.

  1. February was a good time to share some tips about how to make your flowers last longer. Fingers crossed those Valentine’s bouquets gave pleasure for a week or more.

  1. It surprised me that this wasn’t the most popular blog of 2015. Is was Jan’s floral story as Mother of the Bride – with some amazing photos by Olly Knight. Certainly worth a read.DIY wedding flowers


  1. At number two it was all about new year’s resolutions and a heads up on the classes I was teaching in January last year. Check the website over the next week or so and I’ll post this year’s dates. If you can’t wait, drop me a line and I’ll email details across to you.

  1. And my post popular blog post of 2015 was all about a Frozen themed party activity for one lucky 8-year-old and her friends. I’m sure Elsa and Anna would have been very impressed by the creativity shown.

With best wishes for 2016.
