Synopsis: The blossom is out in the little Cornish harbour town of St Felix but Poppy Carmichael's spirits aren't lifted by the pretty West Country spring. Inheriting her grandmother's flower shop has forced her to return to Cornwall, a place that holds too many memories.
Poppy is determined to do her best for the sake of her adored grandmother, but she struggles with the responsibility of the more-shabby-than-chic shop. And with the added complication of Jake, the gruff but gorgeous local flower grower, Poppy is very tempted to run away...
The pretty little town has a few surprises in store for Poppy. With new friends to help her and romance blooming, it's time for Poppy to open her heart to St Felix and to the special magic of a little flower shop by the sea!

BROWN'S LONDON ART WEEKEND: 3RD - 5TH JULY 2015
Brown’s London Art Weekend http://londonartweekend.co.uk which will be happening next weekend, 3rd – 5th July.
An opportunity to experience the unrivalled quality and diversity of the world’s greatest art market destination, 100 Mayfair and St. James’s galleries and auction houses will open their doors to the public for the duration of the weekend. With free talks, walks, and 100 exhibitions to see, Brown’s London Art Weekend offers a unique opportunity for art lovers to explore the capital’s greatest private galleries.
Recommended walks have been designed by some of London’s leading creatives including Nicole Farhi and Paul Smith and will allow the public to discover their favourite haunts. Particularly significant for Nicole Farhi as she opened her first store and restaurant on Bond Street 25 years ago. Having then changed her career from fashion to sculpture, Nicole hosted her first show at Bowman Sculpture in Dukes Street St James’s – her walk truly demonstrates her fondness for the area.
Burlington Gardens will be closed to traffic for the day on Saturday 4th July, with live music, food stalls and art workshops.
Brown’s Hotel, the central hub for the weekend, will host a programme of specialist art talks covering topics from ‘How to start your art collection’ to ‘Fashion in Art’. It is also offering a sumptuous Hix and the Artists all day menu, created by Mark Hix in collaboration with Young British Artists.
VEUVE CLICQUOT MAISON ANNOUNCES GLOBAL PREVIEW OF ITS NEW VINTAGE, LA GRANDE DAME 2006 EXCLUSIVELY AT CLARIDGE’S BAR FOR THE MONTH OF JULY 2015
Veuve Clicquot Maison is delighted to announce a worldwide preview of its new vintage, La Grande Dame 2006, exclusively at Claridge’s Bar in London for the month of July 2015. The finest expression of the House, La Grande Dame 2006 will be the featured ‘Champagne of the Month’ at the hotel’s prestigious bar before receiving its global launch in October 2015.
The elegant sophistication of Claridge’s Bar is the perfect setting to appreciate the finesse and complexity of La Grande Dame 2006.
The vintage’s rich flavours are a taste to savour and for this exclusive preview launch, Claridge’s Bar will offer La Grande Dame 2006 by the glass or as an elite pairing with Aquitaine Caviar and Jumbo Prawn Tempura to create the ultimate indulgence this summer.
Le Grande Dame 2006 is an exclusive blend of Veuve Clicquot’s eight classic Grands Crus vineyards around the villages of Aÿ, Bouzy, Ambonnay, Verzy and Verzenay for the Pinot Noir (53%) and Avize, Oger and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger for the Chardonnay (47%).2006 produced superb quality grapes in Champagne: full ripe Pinot Noir and very typical, fresh intense Chardonnay.
Thanks to its long-ageing, La Grande Dame 2006 is an extraordinary complex wine, intense golden yellow in colour with a nose that is mineral at first then floral, with hints of fresh fruit (vine peaches and pears) and finally overlaid with hazelnut and toasted almonds. After a few minutes, the aromas become even richer, with notes of brioche, nougat, ginger and preserved lemon. The palate is at once full, silky yet crisp and the minerality of the chalk resonates through the fleshy structure, adding to the length of the finish.
Claridge’s Bar is open from Monday to Saturday from noon until 1am and on Sundays from noon until midnight. For more information on Claridge’s Bar and the various offerings please visit the website http://www.claridges.co.uk/
