This is the magnolia in my front yard. Brunswick and Melbourne i love you for your many Magnolia trees.
The wedding we had on this weekend was at Lindenderry in Red Hill. Tall vases of magnolia and little vases of winter wonders below. violets, hyacinth, sweet peas, hellebore, anemones, freesias and daphne.....My van smelt so good i got a head ache on the drive down. After very swift 6hour set up It looked so magical that the bride didn't want to leave at the end of the night....she stayed and kept us company while we packed up.
After jamming as much magnolia as we could fit in the back of the wee van we were back at out little cottage i rented and in bed watching Breaking Bad by 2.30am.....whew after getting up to go to market at 430am (even if i did cat nap between 7pm and 10pm) it was mammoth day!
Thank you to the best team ever....Caitlin and Jac you were amazing. J the best possible floral assistant/driver/sweeper/clearerupera and all round moral support for me. He's one in a million.
Red Hill put on a perfect Sunday for us too,sun shine and 16 degrees... markets, beach and the one and only Peninsula Hot Springs...oh yes, pretty much the only thing which will make you feel better after a 21 hour day and 5 hours sleep. Soak away your aches and pains.
The magnolia we cleared after the wedding is sitting proud as punch in the the front window of Jac's shop Jaclyn Roma in Eaglemont
