This weeks flowers are for myself.
I 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 the 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 hardly 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.
