This weekend we had the pleasure of a visit from Ireland. I wanted to put some flowers in the guest room but after having a look at the predictable shop versions I decided to try my garden - ambitious for this time of year! As it turns out, even more so than I thought.
So I decided to make it a 'spent-season' bouquet. A gathering of garlic chive seed heads, spent rose heads, butterfly bush stalks, berries and basil pods with some green in between.
Ok, and I admit to stealing the honeysuckle from my neighbours, but it's growing through my wall!
Some people might only see the spent but I find it quite pleasing on the eye.
