The art of bringing wildflowers indoors

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.

    Just lovely. Right now we have buttercups all in our backyard. I should bring some inside to cheer things up a bit. 🙂

    These are so beautiful! Bringing wildflowers inside always remind me of Atonement, when the vase gets broken… but maybe that's just my over romantic brain. xx
