May Day: Nature in the Home







A little posy in a jar for a friend. A quick run around the garden to collect flowers revealed more colour and texture than I first thought I had: bright anemones with their dark centres, globe headed chive flowers, dusky sage flowers, delicate bluebells, a few heads of French lavender, the pink-purple lilac, plus some greenery from the philadelphus.

Joining in with the Nature in the Home series - here's to a summer of flowers!

  8. I've got some beautiful blue anemones flowering on my veranda. You've really inspired me to create a posy although it's winter here in New Zealand so I'll be harvesting other companions for them! Lovely, lovely post :-)
