I do love flowers. Despite there being something that jars in my head about enjoying flowers that have been cut from the ground, I just love them. But not all flowers. I am a flower snob I’m afraid. So when I was asked to pick a bunch to be sent to my very self by Serenata Flowers I picked Ianthe, the kind of flowers I doubt anyone would ever send me, but that I would love to look at. Containing purple Lisianthus petals, Trachelium, Veronica and white Roses, they arrived the day after ordering and 10 days later are still going strong – I’ve changed the water a couple of times of course.
Things I liked: The flowers have lasted – far more than ones I have bought from the supermarket. The bunch arrived ready arranged and tied so I literally picked it up and placed into a vase with no trouble spared. The delivery was swift and the box they came in doubles as a space rocket.
Things I didn’t like: The water keeping the flowers fresh in the bottom of the bouquet had leaked a *tiny* bit. No biggie.

The Rafflecopter form says that tweeting everyday earns more entries. But it has deleted entries from previous days. Is this a mistake, or are you doing it deliberately?

these are lovely
Thanks for the chance to win!
Nothing better than fresh flowers in the house!
I love flowers – shame the hubby never buys me them :(
These would be perfect as my wedding flowers! x
I love to have fresh flowers in the house, but am frequently disappointed with how long they last – these look great though
Usually only get flowers or a plant on birthdays
I also love flowers but they look best only when not plucked from the plants, especially
flowers. The jar featuring purple Lisianthus petals and white roses is looking
gorgeous and the flower arrangement is commendable. You are right to say that
people hardly send this type of flowers but they are lovely to look at. It is
great that these flowers can last long when you change the water a few times,
proving your choice and investment to be right and successful.
I would also like to place an order if they are actually as frequent with services as you
are saying. Cheers!
I think the garden was simply out of thisworld and truly deserved a visit from the Queen. Anyone would develop an impulsive interest in gardening after seeing those lovely flowers out there.
The idea of promoting the Viking Cruises Norse Garden with fully-equipped Vikings was
really a great one. Those lime-tree canopies imported from Germany look
magnificent and were probably one of the best showcased at the Chelsea Flower
Show. Last but not the least, the vase featuring Hydrangea Macrophylla Miss
Saori must have been truly a sensation!
I love to have fresh flowers in the house
Always love a bunch of flowers.
Flowers how lovely.
a beautiful giveaway x
It’d be nice to brighten up my home with some flowers for once!
