I don’t normally choose strong colours for the house but these are the mini carnations that looked too happy to ignore. Flowers for the house is such a luxury and my goal is to grow my own of course so there’d be some sort of flowers all year round. Many years ago, when my first daughter was only a few weeks old and we were staying at my mother’s house, one of her good friends, ‘M’, visited to meet the new grandchild for the first time. M has a beautiful house and garden and she brought me a gorgeous little posy picked from that garden. It was so thoughtful and I wished I had dried those flowers to keep.I love the variety in this bouquet. The shorter side branches were put in a smaller bunch for Teen’s windowsill. I like the flash of red.And lilies are always, always so dramatic!Every angle is different. There’s no better adornment and scent than flowers in a home.I’m surprised they lasted this long, over a week when these photos were taken. I do take care to change the water every couple of days and then will resort to using the supplied plant food sachets.I love seeing the textures.And the hyacinths .. this one refuses to flower, instead the leaves grow bigger everyday …?The pink ones are almost finished bloomign already. With flash that shows up the contrast of the yellow centres.Without flash.Some tulips already slightly opened and a lovely jewel colour for Teen’s room. I’d love to put a little vase of flowers in my Sweetie girl’s room too but seriously, even though she has more space, I can hardly get into it … some things never change … 🙂
