Autumnal Flowers From Appleyard London

2 Nov 2015

With 3 days until the John Lewis Christmas advert is revealed (no, I'm not ashamed at how excited I am for that), it may seem like Autumn is on its way out. I don't think I'm quite ready to move on from it right now though; I don't want to say goodbye to the cold, but not freezing weather, the crunchy leaves, the autumnal drinks, and I am definitely not ready to move on from the gorgeous colour schemes that autumn brings. Nature is arguably at its peak in these months, and no matter how much I adore Leeds, I have definitely been longing for my home out of the city and surrounded by fields.

Given my adoration of nature in the Autumn months, I was absolutely thrilled when I was sent the beautiful flowers above from Appleyard London. I've never actually had my own bouquet before, so my housemates would probably say that I was slightly over excited when they arrived on at my door the other week. I chose the 'Berry Compote Bouquet' because roses are my all time favourite flowers, and dark red and cream is the most beautiful combination. Admittedly it's quite a romantic looking bouquet, but I absolutely love it. It's also kind of Christmassy, which is an added bonus!

Right now, Appleyard London has a gorgeous Autumn range of seasonal flowers, which I imagined would just be dark reds and oranges, but there's actually an incredible choice and range of colours. In fact, the variety of colour combinations on a whole is fantastic. I wouldn't exactly call myself a flower expert but I know a great selection when I see one.

I don't exactly have a track record of keeping things alive, and I may or may not have left all the plants in our garden to die from slow and painful dehydration while my parents were away on holiday, but I am happy to say that I managed to keep these roses going strong for a long time.

Would you believe me if I told you that the picture above is of the same bouquet? Although the roses gradually died (from natural causes, I promise I didn't kill them off), I was left with a bunch of lilies which opened up beautifully and are still going strong a couple of weeks later. I love the fact that once the roses are gone you will still have these gorgeous blooming lilies to look forward to!

  1. What a pretty bouquet, I love that after the roses have gone you basically have a new bouquet of lilies!
