Fabulous Faversham strikes again – really, there’s no need to ever go on holiday when you live here!

So much going on this May Bank holiday weekend.  Had a couple of business meetings at Jittermugs: a great café in town.  Fortunately I have a loyalty card, so spending an hour and a half there is saving me money in the long run …


The first weekend of the month is the Best of Faversham market a great opportunity to shop for all sorts of unusual treats from artisan makers and creators.  Called in to Creek Creative to have a look at the flower arrangement designed by one of the members of Faversham Flower club (and scored a Lonely Bouquet – check out my post on National Flower Arranging Day).


Wandered home through the regular market and came across this dusty little vase, complete with chicken wire infill.


Inspired by a Facebook status update I’d seen I used the prolific weed from my garden – Geum urbanum (wood avens/herb Bennet) as the foliage base for a garden-inspired arrangement.  It also features tulip seed heads and couch grass.


If you’d like a virtual tour of my Saturday check out links above – I’d love to hear about your flowery weekend goings-on.  Leave me a comment below.

Until next time, happy flowers! Julie
