I can´t believe these colours, the flowers in the garden are so beautiful now. The peonies are starting to pop out, and our rose-trees are beginning to fill up with the most stunning roses. It´s a fairytale land at Lalande these days, well, especially for a florist!
I can´t really tell you anything about what’s been happening here these days, but I will probably tell you next spring. Haha. Other then the secrecy we had a family volunteering this week. They have been a huge help, who has made me realise why chateaus weren’t meant to be run by just a few handful people. There is so much work, all the time. Luckily, I´ve managed to not be overwhelmed and also to enjoy life here too. I guess that’s how I ended up staying so long.. 😉
THE SUMMER TABLE
We had a dinner party here last night. We´re where all dressed up, and it was a perfect 3-course meal, Lalande style! A bit French mixed with the English cuisine. I did the flowers for the table. I used our new whiskey glasses (since all of our other vases were in use), I added cold water and chicken wire into them. The chicken wire helps arrange the flowers more structurally. Everything is from the garden and I just love that. One day I´ll have my own oasis of a garden with all my favourite cut flowers.
Hope you all have a great weekend! I, myself is just heading out with Stephanie. We´re going to the cinema to watch Aladdin! Yaay. We really need to get out and relax a little, especially with all that’s been going on in the house lately. We better get going. We´re doing a stop at Mc Donalds and then the supermarket to get some food and treats for the movie. Super naughty, but so worth it!
