Romance is in the air...

We've been having a lovely time at the shed, dreaming up and shooting the flower combinations that we'd like to wake up to on Valentine's Day - and we all plumped for softly toned and dusty roses with wilder elements and hints of prettiness - we love the blossom in our Adore bouquet, we think it adds a wonderfully wild feel. The Bennett Bouquet was, of course, inspired by Elizabeth. At times like this, our thoughts all turn to Mr. Darcy..! A huge thank you to Alishia Love who takes our lovely flower photographs - apart from being a complete dream to work with, she's incredibly talented too.

A Huge Thank You!

  I'd just like to thank the local community down here by the river on the borders of Hammersmith and Chiswick, for being so supportive over the eight months that we've been behind the Black Lion on South Black Lion Lane. We live amongst some incredibly talented and immensely creative people and recently the community pulled together, allowing us to continue to bring our beautiful flowers to this part of London. For this we are both hugely grateful and extremely humbled. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts - Lynfa, Alicia, Anna & Clare

We love our wildlife here at Little Lake and do all we can to encourage the little fellas to hang around until the bitter end!  Things to do in October Plant new trees. There's lots of water in the ground now, and they love that. Herbaceous perennials such as delphiniums, hostas, lupins and primroses should be lifted, divided and replanted.  Summer bedding should now be removed...
