Friday Flowers and..........

This week's friday flowers are part of a longer story.
It started with a sample of wallpaper.........not that I'm thinking of wallpapering anywhere but I was in the DIY superstore and I saw a notice in the wallpaper department 'samples no more than a metre please.'......I took that to mean that one could have 1metre samples. 1 metre of wallpaper = backdrops for photographs, so I took metre samples of everything I liked.....they must have thought I was wallpapering a mansion!
So this particular piece of wallpaper has a soft pearly pink background, grey scrolls and yellowy green and pinky purple flowers.....revolting you might say but somehow it works.
Off I went to buy the friday flowers, something to pick up the pinky purple tone in the wallpaper. If you read this blog, you will know that my favourite florist is tucked away behind a greengrocers. Having chosen my tiny chrysanths in just the right colour, on the way out I passed an lovely I turnips, baby aubergines and a bunch of asparagus, suddenly Friday Flowers became Friday Flowers with Wallpaper and Vegetables!

Hope you like the pictures, it will be back to just flowers next week!
Have a wonderful weekend.
