It's true lately I have not been feeling too well.... A lovely pick me up came in the post and I was thrilled!! It was Orchard vouchers for fresh flowers.
Some of you may not know but I every now and then test products and foods for free, yes for free!! with The Orchard at Tesco.
Basically I get to try hand picked Tesco experiences, services and products and all I do in return is write a report giving my honest opinion. In case your wondering, I don't get paid for testing products either! I do it for the fun and it's nice to think my opinion counts.
The program I was invited into was Fresh Flowers from Tesco. Who does not love flowers!!?? I was thrilled...
You all know my health has suffered lately and being house bound is no joke...very boring at times! Han (daughter) said I needed cheering up so some how we managed to get to Tesco with some help! Han went in and luckily they have mobility scooters and I was able to wiz around the store! Hee hee
Yes we decided to do a top up shop whilst there... But the main reason was to look at the fresh flowers! If I am totally honest when I have been in the store on other occasions I have always by passed the fresh flowers. Oh, I love fresh flowers so it's beyond me as to why I had always done that! I guess I had never thought about buying fresh flowers in Tesco! I glided by the fresh flowers and WOW! The draft I was causing with the scooter wafted all the fresh flowers and I was in heaven!
Here are some of the flowers... I have Han to thank for all the photos! :)
How could I choose??!!
What did I choose?....
When we got home Han popped them into vases and WOW! They looked beautiful! Filled my room with the lovliest smell..
I thought I would wait a while to do a review on my blog for a good reason.... I wanted to see how long the flowers would last! Nothing worse than buying (or sampling free in this case!) fresh flowers and they die or droop after a day or two.
Let me tell you I am so happy to tell you all that all our flowers are still looking as lovely as ever some 7 days later!! Seriously impressed!!
Here are mine 7 days later.. The colours are beautiful, and all the freesias are open now.
And Hans fresh flowers 7 days along....
The care guide with the fresh flowers were easy to follow and Han has changed the water once since putting them in the vases. To say that we are both thrilled that they look and smell as good as the day we chose them is an understatement!
Naturally when my parents came to visit, that's been a few times over the last couple of days! Every time my mum has been so jealous that my fresh flowers are still alive, looking and smelling good! Mum was quite surprised when I told her they were from Tesco! And guess where she popped into on her way home??!! Ha ha yes! She went and got some fresh flowers! Awesome!
I cannot get over the fact that I have overlooked the fresh flowers!! I must have a screw loose! It's brilliant as now when I can get to my local Tesco I will make a bee line for the fresh flowers...just because! Who needs a special day to buy flowers? Ha ha not me! And for those days I cannot get to the store I will instruct Han to buy me a bunch or two of the fresh flowers..a lovely surprise!
I understand some of you that visit my blog do not live in England, shame as your missing out on such wonderful fresh flowers!
Thank you for popping in and taking time to read my review, I would love to read any comments you have :)
Until my next post...keep smiling :)
