There is only one wall against which I can take photos because I essentially live in a cave. (Old houses have tiny windows. However it's going to be out of commission for a while because the painter is on his way to cover every surface in @earthbornpaints. Are you excited about the ranunculus coming in? Me too.

Our lovely @airbnb host Sarah left gorgeous home grown flower arrangement in each room. We watched @Floret videos on YouTube and drank a little wine surrounded by hellebores primula and these perfect snakeshead fritillaries. The sun is out and we're going to take a little walk to fetch our map for the #skagitvalley #tulipfestival. I'm expecting great things even if people keep saying it's three weeks behind here. How's it looking at home? Sunny? Should I be worried about my greenhouse…

Wild aquilegia self seeds everywhere for me but the good stuff takes a bit more work. I've been bullying and nursing Chocolate Soldier into existence for three years now. This one is a bonus and one from the @chilternseeds national collection.

Dear @british_airways. Thank you very much indeed for alerting me to the existence of ESTAs before I arrived at Heathrow. For a breath holding twenty minutes I thought I'd be joining the long list of people not allowed into the United States of America. Although if they didn't let me in I would get to see my poppy harvest. It's an ill wind etc.

Grey skies and some welcome rain. Happy Friday.

Narcissus Minnow. Here comes the sun...

The girls done good. Buckets and buckets from quite established plants but I've got a lot of youngsters from @kelwaysplantslangport coming through for next year. The gardener's refrain... always next year. Are the roses out where you are? Just starting here.

Lunch help needed. On my way up to town for a jolly starting at the incredible @petershamnurseries. But... they don't do lunch on Mondays. Do you know anywhere close by for lunch? Or indeed any recommends for local places nearby for me and a girlfriend having a well earned afternoon off. @tbflorist must know...

It's too sunny to be inside. Sadly I am. Are you somewhere fun? I hope so.

So. Tulips. Singles doubles and the odd parrot. I thought going to see @floretflower had somehow sprinkled magic on my instagram feed because the followers just kept coming. Turns out @designsponge named me as one of the 20 Florists to Follow on Instagram: 2017. Somehow whenever it feels really hard and it's Monday and I'm drowning in deadlines and I'm trying to put my make up on in the car the universe gives me a little nudge. The universe or Grace Bonney. Thank you.

Me and quince have a difficult relationship. So it's going. No room for passengers in a flower micro-farm.

Counting down . There is a reason #BritishFlowersWeek is mid June. The best of the summer bursting out of the ground and giving us its all. Fancy a dip? Come and paddle in a sea of blooms in one of the loveliest walled gardens in the South West. Youll be given a bucket and snips and allowed free rein on the endless varieties of sweet peas. A neon pink was a favourite last year not my thing but there is something for everyone. If were lucky the Forde Abbey private rose garden will provide…

Everyone says you have to buy new tulips every year. Mine always always come back and flower their socks off year after year. I can never work out if I'm doing something very wrong or very right. This delicate little thing has found its way into the pot of winter clematis and wins the prize for the first up. I'll be honest it's a very odd colour. But I could look at the markings for hours...

Sometimes I cut things just for me. Just because. This cream lilac can fill a room with scent and is the most perfect colour. How are you treating yourself today?

First leg of the journey is complete. I thought it'd be a good time to put my new camera together. I've made what I thought was a short hop from a D5000 to a D7000. How hard can it be? Quite hard it turns out. Faced with the choice between reading the manual and watching @daniellelaporte videos on Udemy I chose the fire starter sessions. @likesnicephotos might have to explain the incomprehensible buttons at some point.
