Flower Friday - Craspedia

This week I bring you Craspedia (aka billy buttons or billy balls) - these guys are just great and bring a pop of vibrant yellow into an autumn, spring or summer bouquet.





They are great to work with and they last so well out of water - to prolong the enjoyment of these flowers that are a genus of the daisy family they dry super easy too - retaining almost all of their colour pigment too. So if you receive any craspedia in a bouquet I urge you to dry them after your blooms have finished and pop them in a small vase for a really easy, long lasting dried flower display.




This powerful yellow ball of flower loveliness symbolizes good health - which we could all do with in current times!







Other flowery goings on this week include........


Subscription Flowers;

Another haul of these beautiful blooms went out to my subscribers for Novembers subscription flowers - I love how the changing seasons contribute to the colours, flower choices and textures of all the bouquets. I am slowly building up my very own little flower appreciation society and I cant tell you how much I look forward to the 2nd Thursday of the month now! Next month will definitely have a festive vibe - if you want to find out more please do get in touch, I am always up for a chat a

bout flowers!


Xmas Wreath Kit preparation;

I have been over whelmed with all your support for these kits I have create to enable you to create your very own Xmas wreath from the comfort of your own home - I have started to moss up the bases already in preparation for helping you end the year with some sort of festive high at least! I even managed to get my son involved with mossing up those wreath rings (for pocket money and and a bribe of chocolate of course!!) I am still taking orders for these kits so please fill in my online from here if you wish to pre-order ready to get festive!




Until next week.


Clare
