d)I was using my brand new camera and
e) as a resultof b) & d) have taken lots and lots of pics....
10:00 am Getting to work on the seriously legendery Lytch Gate at St CuthbertsWe make the garland in sections in the
workroom and then it is cocooned in special "Crisper" crates it then spends 24 hours in our cool store and is brought back to temperature over a few hours (The shock of fridge to sun would be too much), we wire up a large proportion of the flowers used and use test tubes to ensure that the delicate blooms are in water, this particular Lytch Gate is in a very exposed spot in terms of Sun & Wind so it's essential that the flowers are conditioned properly, in total from start to finish six florists will have worked on this Lytch Gate, but Jason enjoys the plaudits of the passers by whilst he's attaching it to the gate.Two tone Hydrangeas & fresh Lavender, Jason & Rachel
Jason in action, we are very careful never to use nails, tape or glue in fact we don't use anything that may damage the structure we're working on
