Backyard bouquets

After a week-and-a-half of admin and all the grown-up business stuff, we were having serious floral withdrawal symptoms! So it was with great delight that we donned our thermals and high-vis vests for a trip to the flower market. It seems the market missed us too, for when we flashed our market passes the parking booth guy said, with a wink, that he’d missed our smiles. It appears it’s never too early for an ego boost!

As we’re often guided by the unusual, we couldn’t go past these amazing lavender-blue ageratums.

With these in hand, we browsed for other varieties to match and picked up some lisianthus, carnations and hypnose roses to make a playful posy.

And, just because we could, we went a bit rose crazy!

Red and white hypnose and floribunda posy

We think these scentimental floribunda roses (we love a pun, but seriously?), with their delicious splashes of cream, look good to enough to eat.

And here’s what we did with the leftovers…
