So last year for the end of term teachers presents I made these
They were utterly gorgeous and very well recieved, I guess there are only so many mugs and boxes of chocolates you can get?
Now last weekend we were looking hopeful for a repeat, my roses were doing pretty well from a distance (I have terrible hayfever at the moment, so I was looking from the house). Ummm not so much today, this is my primary rose plant for bouquets ‘Mme Alfred Carrier’
Can you see any flowers or buds on it??
When I looked closer there were greenfly all over the plant and they must have eaten the new buds. I’ve now looked closer at the front garden and frankly it’s not much better. Annoyingly the market is on the same day, her last day of term so I’m going to have to make some bouquets up from Tesco’s flowers…I feel dirty but it needs to be done! Hopefully there might be one or two home flowers I can pop in as well to make it look better. But I’m so disappointed, I really wanted to make them special. Oh well maybe next year.
