Spring’s Bright

IMG_3494

Week 18 of The Blooms features Centaurea Montana also known as the perennial or mountain cornflower.  Picked in my neighbour’s garden, at a distance they didn’t necessarily stand out as a striking candidate for a cut flower.  Once arranged with a few other ingredients from my garden however, these spring flowers, with their attractive buds and unique looking petals, stand out as bright as bright can be! Not only a favourite of mine, they seem to be a hit with the bees as well.

    1. Hi Angie. It’s Solomons Seal. It’s a nice one to arrange with because the stems are so long and hang so nicely with the little white bells. Thanks for all your support Angie. I just wish I had access to all my mum’s vases and jugs! I would be in heaven!
