Hello from Sunday night everyone.
I hope you had a lovely weekend. Ours took some twists and turns, but hey, the sun came out for the first time all month! 😀
Today we decided last minute to visit Robert’s aunt Mary-Louise.
Mary-Louise is Robert’s mother’s sister, and she had some photos of R’s late mom he was keen to see.
So we got into the TVR! And hooned across the Oxfordshire countryside.
We got to Mary-Louise’s beautiful home just in time for tea.
If you’re like me, you’d never think of coming to someone’s house empty handed, and so I made a lovely Christmasy, hand-tied green bouquet for Mary-Louise.
I used willow and all sorts of greens from the garden, and well as some winter blooming virburnum, which smells of honey.
I wove tiny willow wreaths and tied them on with a length of white ribbon.
And also tied on golden snowflakes.
I did have to take the whole bouquet outside though and gently persuade a couple lady bugs back into the bushes.
Mary-Louise loved the green bouquet and we spent a couple lovely hours with her, touring the house, pouring over photographs, paintings and portraits and listening to wonderful family stories, and then on the way back home, we stopped at our local pub for supper.
