Every year I try to grow a few flowers to pick and have in the house. Usually we have an abundance of Sweet Peas and not much else. This year I am pleased to say I have had a vase of home grown flowers in the house every week since July.
Roses, Lavender, Cosmos and Sweet Peas form the basis of each vase but if something looks good I pick a bit and add to the bunch. My Cosmos is mostly grown in pots but is flowering beautifully this year with a little help from the dead heading.
I think my filled vases look wonderful, cheer me up everytime I catch a glance of them and could complete with any bought flowers. What do you think?
