Flowers from the garden: November 2009

Today is my mother’s 90th birthday. She was born at home in a lovely old house in Kentford. When ever I drive past this house I look up at the large bedroom window and imagine her opening her eyes in that room back in 1919.

The window overlooks a walled garden. Were the birds singing or was it dark outside? Were there flowers in the room where she was born?

So this little posy is travelling over to Cambridge this afternoon. A bunch of country flowers for her bedroom. Picked from a garden that she helped to create. Just a few miles from the garden where she played as a child.


  1. Your blog looks nice and the picture of flowers looks awesome. Vase looks impressive too. Your mother must be happy to received it.
