Although formal arrangements can look stunning in the right place, I much prefer something simple for my home.
I love the soft and pretty colours of all these arrangements, easing us into the new year gently. The containers are wonderful too, even this rusty old tin! The little vintage fabric bag for the lily of the valley, is such a clever idea.
I often see these little trees in magazines and on the Internet, they are myrtle I think. I would love to be able to get hold of one or two, as I think they are fabulous, and also my mum's name was myrtle! At the end of the summer I did buy 2 rosemary topiaries, which I have on my kitchen window. I wasn't sure how they would survive, but they are doing well and are even in flower at the moment. I have no batteries in my camera , so I cannot show you them, but here they are when new.
It didn't last too long, the frost had got it, but I was flabbergasted that it would even try to bloom. Perhaps one of you gardener types could tell me if this is normal. There are two more blooms on the plant now, so fingers crossed. Wishing you all a 'bloomin' good week, with love, Linda x
