It’s been sporadic, but I am still trying to avoid buying cut flowers, choosing to find things* from the garden to bring inside instead.
I have been collecting interesting jars and bottles to put them in. It hasn’t gone unnoticed either – a friend popped in the other day with three little glass bottles saying that she thought I’d like them for flowers!
It seems that I enjoy finding wild flowers just as much as things I have intentionally planted and this green alkanet is spreading around the garden at the moment (warning! it stings like crazy!)
Then, I have to confess to stopping in the lane that leads to my local nursery to pick some cow parsley to add some frothiness.
Add a couple of bluebells that are wasted growing in the tiniest of gaps along my drive and my kitchen windowsill is looking good. In my opinion.
And so does the table. (The eggs have long gone…)
I’m going on my annual bluebell walk tomorrow, but I think we may be disappointed as everything has flowered so early this year…
