Roses and Lillies

This weeks flowers are for myself.

2015-12-12 09.55.55I like to start by sorting them into groups of the same flower. This way I can see what I’ve got to work with. I decide which flowers I’d like to have at the front of th2015-12-12 09.59.00e vase and work my way to the back.

I trim the stems and cut away any leaves that would be at water height. Otherwise these go slimy and smelly.

I put the lillies at the back of the vase as the flowers are quite large when they open up. So I 2015-12-12 10.03.37hardly cut anything off their stems. You need to cut some off so that they’re able to take in the water.

I find flower arranging very therapeutic, I’m not sure why.

 

 

 

Then this was the finished product.

    • Thanks 😉 Its just something I really enjoy but I’m not sure I could make a living out of it.
      I used to work in a nursery with plants for set years pre having children. I am tempted to get back into that though.
