Fresh flowers! Since Parpy Jo and I stopped having our weekly brunch at Grounded and going over the road to the racist florist for blooms in the sale, I haven't had as many fresh flowers in the house, which is a shame, because they do really cheer the place up.
This lot were a gift from the schools governors. I've been a school governor for eight years (it still slightly horrifies me that I can say I've done anything for eight years, tbh) and as my second term came to an end, I decided it was time to step aside and let someone else have a turn. I did say I would be re-recruited if nobody would take it but now I'm afraid nobody will.
Anyway, gorgeous fleurs! Enough to fill two vases, and the big vaseful lasted until the start of this week when I finally threw them out - so, nearly three weeks. Impressive.
