Partridge pear tree

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me...
A partridge in a pear tree

Designers getting ready,
Foliage getting foraged,
Bags of giant pine cones,
Red and white carnations,
White chrysanthemums,
St Bart's being prepared,

The countdown to the floral event of the year is now on and Cath Scales, Chair of Wistaston and District Flower Club, is busy preparing her 'Partridge in a Pear Tree' floral arrangement. We're excited to see what she has planned!

Thanks to J.Hulse Baker and Grocer, Worleston, for sponsoring this arrangement.
