I was inspired by Lynne Robinson’s post on foraging for flowers to try and scramble together a lovely bouquet for myself. You know, something to cheer up our mantel.
And what a haul I managed, right? It’s a surprise, really. We live in a really built up area. But I never noticed how many flowers are hiding in car parks, by the sides of alleys, and in neglected little bits of urban wilderness.
I did feel a little guilty snipping away, but I made sure not to take too many of one type from one place. Honest (and those are Spanish bluebells – not the endangered English ones!).
And if you love flowers, check out Little Green Shed’s series – Nature in the Home – I’d definitely recommend you pop on over there.
