This is my favourite in the silver vase, very glam, and then there was the martini glass which got lots of compliments…..and the tulips, a single colour, such a lovely shade of violet, right along the mantlepiece.
The volcano put paid to the gyp but in some ways I think that’s a good thing. Who would have thought that a simple thing like gyp would have been flown all the way from South America – a 24 hour flight. Surely that can’t be a great use of the world’s resources. So I picked blossom from the trees. Season and local – it looked lovely in the fireplace displays.
