At the Balcony Garden Roast lovely Miss B, who once housesat the balcony garden for me, brought with her a lovely posy from the garden. I blogged about it here. A few weeks on the flowers were more than dead and gone, that is unless you believe in reanimation or vampire daisies! Alas this meant the living room was without colour and without a certain perfume that is a constant reminder of the beginnings of spring. It was whilest sitting on the balcony late today (having taken the afternoon off from uni due to the ails of the changing seasons (i.e. sore throat)) that I realised I could make my own pretty posy from the flowers in the balcony garden. At first I was hesitant because I didn't want to disturb the colourful balcony, which looks like this at present.
It would take some careful thinking and selection to keep the balance of inside and outside florals. I grabbed some of the lavender which was getting a bit unruly, so instead of stealing colour I was pruning and posying in one movement.
There was a large abundance of violas so surely the hanging pot would not look too shabby without them.
And the pansies were taking a beating by the wind so I saved a few of them, both white and purple.
In the end this was the result.
I looks lovely and smells great. Wonder how long it will last ...
