Hello and welcome to my blog. If you like flowers and gardens, housey stuff, food and banter, then this is the place for you. I am a decorative artist, florist and maker of things. I sell painted furniture, plants and crafts, through a local retail shop, in my native Ireland, and wedding flowers from home. I am married to a lovely patient man and have a smashing little girl. I blog for the fun of it. Thank you for listening.

Flowers always

Flowers bring me joy. How about you?

It has been almost a year since I posted and I don't know if there is anyone out there, but I am ready to blog again. I am not sure what it is that makes a person stop blogging, just too busy, burned out, or lacking something to say. I am not sure what made me stop, perhaps a combination of all these things.
I do however enjoy blogging, sharing ideas, discussion, reading other people's blogs and making connections. I hope you will have me back?

These are some simple flower arrangements I did throughout last year. I am really looking forward to seeing things appear once again in my garden,as there is not too much going on at the moment. I love simple posies arranged in jugs and jars scattered hither and thither, making me stop in my tracks to take in the beauty and scent.


  1. Such beautiful flowers, always a joy to me too! And so lovely to see you are back here again Linda!

  2. Beautiful photos of flowers are always a pleasure to see. Blogging is a hard habit to break completely. Welcome back!

  3. I missed you, Linda. I totally understand because I struggle to blog regularly, visit others blogs and leave a comment. I could spend all my time commenting and never posting. It is hard to find a balance.
    Your flower arrangements are beautiful. I'm glad you are back blogging. Happy New Year.

  4. Hello Linda,
    Happy to see you are blogging again. I like your way of arranging flowers. Like you, I am going to blog soon.
    Time seems to interfere. Fondest wishes for a very Happy New Year.

  5. Love your gorgeous bouquets! Nothing better than being surrounded by those beauties!

  6. Well, hello Linda. This was a surprise, but it's lovely to see you here again. Like you, I had a break for about a year. It all just got too much! I've been back for a few months, and it's nice to see that quite a few people seem to be gradually com get back to blogging again. I loved your floral arrangements. Welcome back ❤️


I love to hear your comments.....
