Freesias, these were rescued from a larger bouquet that I had on my birthday, the ivory roses that were in it were very poor (and must have cost a bomb), but these excelled. I love the peppery floral fragrance and the misleading delicate look they have. In fact they're pretty indestructible.
I just pulled off the browning and/or wilting flowers, cut them down quite a bit and bunched them together for this old jug. To keep the stems held firmly, and to disguise the amount of stems, I scrunched up some of the cellophane that flowers come wrapped it around the flowers, put the whole lot in the water and bingo. The flowers stay neatly bunched and look like you have masses. This works best with open blooms, even ones almost past their best. It gives them a new lease of life I think.
Very busy extra curricular week ahead as well. Some medical training and a Y11 boys' cooking class, led by guess who? They are choosing the menu and doing the cooking, I'm there to advise and make sure they don't set the school on fire. And I'm only half joking.
