Flower Power

The Easter holiday fun continues….

This weekend with the arrival of sun, family Radcliffe took a trip to Halford’s and got biked up.

I have not ridden a bike for about 20 years, t was a sight for sore eyes!! After about an hour and a half in the saddle I was definitely feeling very uncomfortable!

According to Mr R, I am completely wrong to expect cycling to be comfortable and apparently saddles are not sofas… I beg to differ my new ‘Big Bum Sprung Bike Saddle’ is on order!

the sofa of saddles!

Now onto the important stuff, my summer trend du jour is ‘florals’.

I’m a sucker for a floral so this trend will suit me down to the ground. Flower power has hit the catwalks and so in turn the high street.

This seasons florals are not the BHS variety of flat garden prints. No florals literally sprang forth from the catwalks of S/S ’13, taking on 3D forms. They were oversized, playful, placement, embroidered and photographic.

They took us on a journey through the decades from the floaty and feminine 20’s to the ditsy print tea dress of the 30’s and on to the graphic 60’s.

In fact you name it, it was there.

There surely has got to be something for everyone with this trend?

So what about the high street, what will we find there to satisfy the budding horticulturists amongst us?
