As usual, there was a bit of stress over the flowers when they turned up. 2/3 of the lilies were fully blown open and the last 1/3 looked they'd never budge open before next Christmas. So we lived in sweaters with the air-con on the lowest setting in the main room, to prevent the lilies dying, the other room had tightly closed lilies beside a heater!! In the end, it all worked out. It usually does, even if some days mean pulling an all-nighter or having to grab flowers from neighbour's gardens (or worse, having to raid the local council gardens - sometimes we even get permission - shhhhh)!
Everyone seemed to love the bouquets.
