Florist stories

Spookerly fantastic!

19th October 2016

Autumn is in the air and the classic signs are when the leaves change colour and some start to fall.
Well I don’t know about the rest of you, but I go into hibernation mode. Thinking what I’m having for tea keeps me warm all day, and just can’t wait to jump into my pjs and get cosy.
When the garden is starting to look brown and crisp and all looks a bit soggy after the rain…
We all need a bit of a lift and so when the pumpkins start appearing in the supermarket when I know it’s time to dust down the witches broom and begin thinking about Halloween…
This year I had the opportunity of enquiring some fantastic Cornus (dogwood) which has the most lovely dark red stem. With the help of my youngest daughter, we spent a Saturday morning picking the leave of each stem then creating a arch for over the door. Tied with wire and secured, we then went to the local woods and found pine cones and moss to give a natural base to our arch.
Now a few days later we have purple fairy lights and waiting for some Halloween treats coming from the shop. All the witches you could want are now displayed at Lisas Florist store and we are stocking up on mini pumpkins and gourds… So come along if you dare…

Happy Halloween!
