Goodwood Revival & The Spriggs Team

 its a long list:

van packed

& off we go to Goodwood...

with silver bowls filled with roses & hydrangeas

peacock feathers & gladioli

 china jugs & vessels of all shapes & sizes

champagne buckets & martini vases

even little Geoff got in on the act in the pit lanes

but don't confuse little Geoff with the boss!

after making all the laurel garlands he is off to the Highlands for a spot of fishing

then it was back to the big house for a dinner party

anyone for a canapé

Matthew will be dressing up on Sunday
so look out for this dapper chap 

but not this one - Tom is preparing for Uni

so if your at Goodwood have a great weekend

a little bit of this & a little bit of that

its been awhile i know since we did a blog post

& i read in an article about blogging that you should not apologies for not writing more often...

but i am going to fail on both accounts - sorry for the blog silence

we have missed reading your comments...

So as a bit of a catch up here we go...

the hanging baskets at Spriggs are doing rather well despite the slow start

you can see the seasons are changing - there are heathers in dusky shades
cyclamen plants and echuvairas

samples for that big do at Goodwood next weekend

have just ordered 10,000 flowers - that's a lot of 00's - its a bit scary adding it up

a bit of early morning photography in the park

apologies if you don't do spiders - but he was very busy and the light was just to good

sorry - need to concentrate on the flowers

these little darlings with seed heads, wheat and hops were going to a wedding on a farm

 & these are for the boys

and we're worked with the wonderful folk from Wigwam

& the very lovely Joanne - elegant stationery

filled silver bowls with cherry brandy roses amongst other autumnal flowers

decorated poles & tables

i think that will do for now

its time to go home & cook the mountain of zucchini picked from the allotment last night
watch DrWho with Tom before he disappears to uni to study astrophysics

not bad - bucket boy to astrophysicist....

have a lovely weekend
