Flowers & Seedpods

With the sun shining this morning I created two dresses with the flowers of Leonotis Leonurus and the seedpods from Iris foetidissima.

I’ve often combined the two in a vase – the splash of orange is a dramatic inclusion to an Autumn arrangement – but this is the first time using them for my Garden Fairy’s Wardrobe.

This is one of the dresses and you can can see the other at the petal & pins Facebook page.

Crocosmias form a swathe of orange at the bottom of my garden – perfect for a Garden Fairy’s sundress.
