The first of the spring poppies to open.
I love creating small arrangements from flowers I find in the garden. Although it’s the middle of winter here there are actually still quite a number of flowers about. I noticed these parsley flowers were particularly pretty at the moment as they were just starting to bloom. I’m usually disappointed to see these as I know this means the plant is on its way out, but today I thought I’d make the most of them being around.
I paired them with a few little forget-me-nots and some pretty pale pink flowers. The parsley stems were covered with a fairly large amount of leaves which I snipped off and put aside (to use in my lunch!) I think they have such a delicate beauty and look great just even on their own. I’m hoping they will dry well too. Even though they are winter flowers, I love that they bright, sunny spring-time feel.
Have you ever used parley or other vegetable/herb flowers in an arrangement before? Which ones are your favourite to use?
