Say it with flowers

Since the start of the year, I have been unable to add flowers to my online supermarket shop. During the daffodil season, I was able to buy them from Tesco but even that has come to an abrupt end. Morrisons were the only supermarket to have flowers to purchase online but unfortunately I no longer shop with them as they often don’t have the things that I am wanting while Ocado only sells floral arrangements from Bloom and Wild which is way beyond my weekly budget! All I am looking for are just simple flower bunches like roses to add colour to the Vicarage.

I know that some people will look down their noses on people like me who buy their flowers from supermarkets but due to our rural location and my health, I don’t have easy access to florists. I have tried looking at e-florists but they too only do floral arrangements.

I know that with Covid-19 and Brexit, things have become complicated but I also feel that supermarkets spoil us by turning into one stop centres where we can buy EVERYTHING and once we have successfully become overdependent on them, they withdraw services according to their whims and fancies.
