One of the things I miss most around my home is all the flowers I used to buy when we were “living the dream” . After the bubble burst one of the first things I had to give up was the extravagance of buying flowers. I was spending about £50 a month on them, obviously when times are tough this was first to go, along with trips to the hairdresser, new clothes etc.
Since moving to this house with its established garden I wait for this beautiful Weigela to flower and my goodness it never disappoints me. It only stays around for a short while so I make the very most of its beautiful blooms.
