oh my word. i can hardly believe my yesterday. i was surrounded by true british glory, playing with locally grown flowers at mapperton house..the setting to the latest film of far from the madding crowd. charlie from the british flower school mentored a small group of us through a course on w i l d floristry. she generously gave us her flower farm blooms to do urn, shallow bowl and hand tied arrangements as well as pootle around the epic gardens, home to the earl of sandwich 🙂
i feel at home in this place, with these flowers.
