This week I have tried to create an unusual arrangement fitting of the chosen vase. Hendricks prides itself on being different and slightly peculiar, which is what I think makes it my favourite gin. Taking this into consideration I chose plants I would not normally reach for, Thistles and Nettles, as the main features of my arrangement. Enjoy the weekend!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOne of my favourite blogs to read is Late Afternoon, where every Friday inspirational floral photos are shared. Late Afternoon’s weekly posts along with the positive response from the photos of my tubs, in my first Flowers on Friday post, have inspired me to try my hand at different types of arrangements and share the results. This week I used wild flowers collected during a long walk with some Goat Willow. Have a lovely weekend!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIn the final week of June I worked at a local nursery finishing up the bedding season, which mainly involved chucking out all the flowers that were past their best and could no longer be sold. Since I am awful for throwing things away, even when I really should (I need to clear room in my wardrobe!) I set about rescuing enough plants to make up some tubs and troughs, in order to brighten up my boyfriend’s back garden. Here are some photos of how they turned out, have a lovely weekend!
