Appleyard London Summer Flowers

In the Summer I love spending my time going on long walks through the park & admiring all the seasonal blooms. I wish I had my own garden to decorate & relax in but for now I'll have to make do with filling the interior of my house with pretty flowers instead. Going to the local market & picking up some freshly cut flowers is always fun but they invariably get ruined on my bus journey home. I much prefer having flowers delivered directly to my door. It feels like such a lovely treat & a skilled florist does all the hard work of putting your bouquet together so you don't have to! Earlier this week I had the pleasure of receiving this stunning Summery bouquet from Appleyard London. They are a boutique florist with a strong emphasis on luxury. This is their Forget-Me-Not bouquet which is an elegant arrangement of blue hydrangeas, avalanche roses, white germini & alstromeria. I normally end up buying pink flowers so I fancied something different for a change. They certainly brighten up the room & have a beautiful fresh scent. The blue, white & green colours look wonderful together & they go perfectly with my polka dot jug from Laura Ashley.

I was really impressed with the delivery of my flowers. They were delivered securely by Royal Mail in a huge box & wrapped in white cellophane. The stems sit in a cube of water which keeps the flowers hydrated during transit. They also include a sachet of plant food to prolong the life of your bouquet. When my flowers arrived they looked immaculate with no damage whatsoever. Appleyard London really go that extra mile to ensure that their flowers look as beautiful when they arrive as they did when they were sent. The alstromeria hadn't opened up yet so I was a bit worried that the rest of my bouquet would wilt before they did. However it still looks as fresh today as it did at the beginning of the week which just shows the quality of the flowers that Appleyard London use in their bouquets. I got to watch the alstromeria bloom more each day which was really lovely. You can probably tell that I love taking photos of flowers, I went a little bit overboard in this post! I just think they make such an interesting subject & it's a nice way of preserving them forever.
