These are the flowers that my family bought for me as a reward for running the London Marathon. I really love them, so bright and cheery, exactly what I’ve needed to put a smile on my face whilst I limp around the kitchen.
I’ve been trying to educate my 2 boys on the art of buying flowers for a lady. Here are the golden rules in my opinion.
1 Under no circumstances should you ever buy a woman flowers from the petrol station and supermarket flowers are not always a good thing either.
2. If in doubt go for a bunch of all the same type for example tulips, daffodils or roses.
3. The best place for flowers is a good florist.
Taking this information on board my oldest son tried to reassure me that these flowers had indeed come from my local favourite florist. However the one that doesn’t lie, Tink, revealed they were actually from Waitrose. I was gracious and suggested that if the flowers were to come from a supermarket then Waitrose was probably the best option.
