Thank you Google for putting Higgledy Garden at the top (nearly) of your global search for Royal Wedding Flowers…and yes you’re right, we deserved it….and yes we deserve to be beating Interflora….what’s a margarine company doing talking about such an important topic anyway?
We have been swamped with mail from all over the known world and beyond, thank you all…you sweet little munchkins.
We’re still waiting for Kate Middleton to call. We had a call from a Kate Fishflop trying to save us money on our electric bill…but alas Kitty Middleton is playing hard ball.
A famous (and rubbish) ‘Floristry’ company has suggested that Kitty uses seasonal flowers to (and I quote) ‘save money’. Not because they will be the most beautiful flowers available….and not because they MUST be quintessentially British flowers…but because she needs to save a few bob…do these people know who they’re dealing with here. Do they expect her to turn up in a Fiat Panda outside some registry office wearing a boob tube and pink hot pants with ‘Juicy’ written on the seat? This is the future queen of England not the girl from the ‘Mum’s shop at Iceland’ advert.
Royal Wedding Flowers Should Be Grown In Great Britain.
Another thing that has made me angry….(and I preempt)…Columbia will send plane loads of flowers as they did for the lovely Princess Victoria of Sweden when she got married. We love you Columbia, and though your flowers are very beautiful, the environmental cost of getting them here is too high. Kitty’s going local. Any minute now the phone will ring and it will be our lass asking for flowers in jars with bunting.
So watch it Columbia…we’ve got our eye on you and your roving little mits. This is our gig.
