I don’t normally work on Mondays, but today was the exception and also the first time I’ve brought flowers to the office since I’ve been back at work.
The flowers travelled up with me from the island, (together with many Isle of Wight Festival leavers) wrapped in cling film (the flowers, not the Festival leavers). They always come out looking a little crushed but generally bounce back
At my old job I took flowers to work every week in the summer and always concentrated on sweet peas as I love the scent so much. This week the arrangement is largely sweet peas, but they’ve been joined by a couple of newcomers. Firstly, Dianthus Green Trick. This was bought as plugs from Sarah Raven, but I’ve then propagated more by taking cuttings. I really like the fresh green they provide.
In addition, and linking to my earlier GBBD post, are couple of sugar pink Ranunculus. And no, these are even less Purple Heart than the cerise ones, but they look pretty here and will hopefully last well
Just a short post as I’m struggling to blog on my iPad, but it’s always fun to join in. Why don’t you go and have a look at what other bloggers have arranged in their Monday vases?
With thanks as ever to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for hosting.
