Flower arranging. A vicar’s wife’s duty and joy, you might think.
But it’s just something I’ve never learnt about. I have a very good friend whose mum is a professional and did the flowers at my wedding. But somehow I never picked anything up from her.
I love to look at flowers, but making a stunning arrangement for the table or the front of church is just beyond me.
I once had a conversation with the wife of the chap who was my vicar when I was a teenager.
‘Flower arranging – it just makes me very disagreeable’ she said. ‘So I try not to.’
Good advice I feel. Best leave it to the pros.
And maybe get the t-shirt too.
