Mr Petal & Pins and I finished the Australia Day long weekend with a late lunch on the deck.
I like to arrange flowers in old jars for alfresco dining – even if it’s just the two of us!
For this arrangement I picked some nasturtiums, crocosmia, a sprig of snowberry, a fern leaf and some parsley flower buds.
Cathy started ‘In a Vase On Monday’ as a weekly ritual of bringing something from the garden inside no matter what the season and invites you to do the same. It’s always lovely to see what’s flowering in other people’s gardens and their arrangements.
And my picnic posy now graces the kitchen table.
Legend has it, the Goddess Aphrodite created aromatic oregano as a symbol of joy and grew it in her garden on Mount Olympus.
It’s in flower at the moment in my garden and there’s ample for cooking and creating.
I decided to use two shades of pink together inspired by the two colour effect of the fabric twine I’ve started making.
I found the instructions on My Poppet. It’s easy to make and all ready my mind is sparking with ideas for what I might do with it.
Always better than them ending up in landfill.
