Friday Flower Arrangement

There is not all that much in the garden in winter. Or so I think, until I start wandering around and I collected this little pile.

There is always foliage of some sort, particularly among the native plants.
Proteas are a winter winner and my daffodils have started flowering.
I do have quite a few camellias but I find that they do not last in a vase. The flower heads just drop off within a day or two. Any hints for making them last longer in a vase?

This is what I came up with for this week.

I am eagerly anticipating the first ranunculas - the buds are forming. Tulips are poking through. The poppies are putting on lots of growth. So many flowers are coming; so much colour to look forward to! I cannot wait!


  1. I too cannot wait for all the lovely colour of the Spring bulbs, Jayne. Your bunch of daffodils, Proteas and the little white blossoms have put a smile in my day. There is no such colour down here; fingers crossed, not long now.

    1. It is so exciting to wait for the change of seasons. I couldn't live somewhere there was no real contrast.

  2. The daffodils are lovely, it is wonderful seeing all the bulbs coming through.
