Snowdrops, honeysuckle and lily of the valley
This morning i cut snowdrops and tendrils of evergreen honeysuckle.
They were mixed with, myrtle, olive, rosemary,viburnum, majolica roses, ranunculus,lilac and avalanche roses.
I had a pot of lily of the valley on the workbench, which was destined for my bedside, but the stems fell victim to my flower scissors, and were tucked into the bridal bouquet.
I have friends that do amazing things with rose and hydrangea domes, but for me it ain't a wedding without foliage. Garden foliage. The scent, the movement. I like to think a bride will hold her bouquet, and the honeysuckle will dance, or somebody will brush their hand against the rosemary in a table centre as they pass the wine.
I spend far too much of time thinking about this sort of thing.
I need to get a life.
In other news, Jane is doing Flowers in the home Monday again. I have been instructed to take something fresh home this time. Join in. Or just have a peek over on her blog and see who did.
I can't decide if it is more fascinating to look at the flowers, or the inside of the homes.
Next week: A how to.Video.
p.s. I love all your red lipstick suggestions, next time i am near a city i fully intend to visit the cosmetic counters and try them all out.
