Sometimes I enjoy the making-of the bouquet even more than the finished result. This was put together quickly one evening a couple of weeks ago, when the garden was at its best and giving generously.
I'm not sure if everyone is going to like this one, not very structured, rather busy, but at the time it just seemed gloriously lush, if rather difficult to capture on film!
As I walked around the garden finding suitable flowers for my vase, I carried them in an old wooden trug. If there had been a way of keeping them in water in the trug, they wouldn't even have been transferred to a vase.
This bouquet was definitely as much about texture and contrast as simple colour and pretty flowers.
If you haven't entered the grain sack giveaway yet, there's still time!
