happy birthdays

snowdrops and fern
Today our family will be celebrating two Birthdays - 
my Mom's and my Great Aunt's!

Two very special ladies who I felt deserved an extra special little touch 
added to the top of their gifts
I love tying flowers and sprigs of greenery to a package
 to give it a fresh from the garden feel.
There isn't much in the garden to chose from right now
but it's amazing what a few snips can create
when tied together with a pretty ribhon!

primula and ivy

I use this type of flower water pick to keep the blooms fresh all day.
They are sold in most garden centres and craft stores.

Now I'm off to bake a cake with a new flourless recipe that, if all goes well,
I will share with you tomorrow!  ;o)
Have a wonderful day!
