“In the summer I was in the park when I came upon a beautiful bouquet of flowers with a note on them saying ‘Lonely bouquet – please take it home’ which I did.

Discovering the bouquet was an unexpected, magical moment.” (Juliet – Lonely Bouquet Recipient)

A wreath is definitely not just a wreath because Liz provides such a huge selection of leaves and ornaments – many dried and natural and local to The Cotswolds.

I’ve just taken my wreath down (so sad) and it is as fresh and vibrant as the day I put it up.” (Harriet – Wreath Workshop Attendee)
