The first thing I picked were some sprays of this delicate pink flower, perhaps you can identify it – I salvaged the plant from a neighbourhood green waste pile (I had the perfect bare patch to welcome it!)
I multi-tasked and watered the garden while randomly picking things including fig leaves, snow berry, purple leaved smokebush and parsley flower heads.
This ad hoc approach meant much more fiddling was required when I came to put my bunch in a vase and I ended up adding some dried gum nuts to toughen it up.
I used a vintage cut glass vase I bought from the tip shop and photographed it with one of the birds Mr Petal & Pins and I have bought as holiday momentos – this one we found in Lake Como.
