Late last year a lovely florist called Ceri Elms from Lumley and Elms visited our flower farm for a look around and to buy some flowers.

She told me they were for 'someone rather special,' but no more.

A few days later she shared pictures of what she had done with the flowers and who they were for.

I think you will agree that The Queen is rather special indeed!
