I have been a very sloppy blogger over the last few weeks
and I am afraid it isn't going to get much better over the coming months.
I am in the middle of researching and writing a new book and it is taking every spare moment and bit of energy that I have.
I am not complaining as I am loving it. But I am apologising. I will write more about the project as it progresses - but for now it is just the early days.
Enough about that, back to the flowers.
I called in to see my friend Kate at Rustic Rose in Sturminster Newton and she was busy decorating the shop for Autumn. And as you can see Kate doesn't do things by halves!
Kate is also busy decorating a shirt in the colours of her Dad's race horse 'Hunt Ball', to show her support for him in an up and coming race. Her Dad, who is a local dairy farmer, bought the horse for a bit of bargain - he
did not have a particularly good track record. But with the help of a young trainer her Dad had spotted, they have won seven our to their last eight races.
I think I might start decorating a shirt too!
