The Gower Peninsula is one on the most stunning coastlines, in fact the first designated area of outstanding natural beauty in the UK. Maybe I’m biased as I grew up here and it is truly lovely. I left Gower to work in London some years ago now but go back to visit family and friends on a regular basis as it is such a special place! Recently we held a flower workshop in Horton Village Hall.
I filled my car with gorgeous flowers and headed off down the M4, the weather was spectacularly beautiful and the only worry was keeping the flowers cool enough. That evening everyone turned up with a sharing plate of something delicious to eat and a bottle of something to drink and combined with learning how to make a handtied bouquet made for a very sociable evening. The results were perfect!
Pretty bunches of tulips, alstromeria, asters, iris, marigolds, craspedia, veronica, greenbell and eucalyptus, all looking very natural with a just picked garden feel! I’m delighted to say that there were many comments on how with new found knowledge, that the ladies felt inspired to pick flowers and foliage from their gardens, possibly mix them with some bought flowers and feel confident to arrange them.
