A few weeks ago I was mooching around Pinterest looking for floral inspiration an pinned this and this. I hoped that at some point in the summer I would have enough of those blue and whites to create something similar.
More purple than blue but still this basic idea is there. I was thrilled when I arranged that little vase-full.
And I had some ammi left over so made another airy arrangement using my favourite calendula and a bonus of two white poppies.
The poppies don’t last long, I seared the stem ends in boiling water for 20 seconds, but the are so pretty and worked well in this vase.
Ammi is great. It certainly adds a frothy and very country feel to an arrangement. I must remember to try and sow it in the autumn for bigger plants this year.
Just look at those wonderful cheery flowers. Oh! this Bloom thing makes my heart sing. And if floral is your thing don’t forget about the wonderful seasonal flower alliance going on over here.
