On the ninth day of Christmas my true love gave to me....Nine ladies dancing

How wonderfully apt that the Butterfly Dance Studio at Bradfield House, Middlewich is sponsoring Nine Ladies Dancing.

The designers of this floral art creation are Judy Gratton and Jean Jones, both members of Wistaston and District Flower Club,.

Jean says: "The nine ladies will be dancing in shades of pink, white and silver and they have their ballet shoes and tutus ready"

Judy & Jean are using some of our favourite flowers, carnations, gerberas and beautiful pink roses.

Would you believe? — a trace of the pink rose was found in fossils dating back 40 million years. More recent historical evidence shows pink roses were grown in China's Imperial rose gardens about 5,000 years ago, and they have continued to play a part in history ever since. In modern times pink roses are one of the most popular flowers sent on Valentine's Day.

Thanks again to the Butterfly Dance Studio for sponsoring this arrangement.

I don't know what you do in the morning, but my routine involves a check round the fields, clearing off any unwanted crows and rooks, and a bathe in Eel Brook. Well I tell himself its a bathe but really I'm looking for eels, they are said to be good for one's coat — its the slime apparently.

It has felt like the longest summer ever already as I listen to the noise of the rain on our roof. The grass is still a dry shade of crunchy brown from the unbelievable Mediterranean weather conditions we have been having in this little corner of England. It is the hottest summer I can remember since I was a child, collecting water from stand pipes in the streets of Cardiff. Who could have...
