Chrysanthemums often get a raw deal as they are seen as inexpensive, too commonly available and ‘fillers’ for bouquets. All of those points being true of course, but looking at the positive side, as they are available from just about everywhere at any time of year, you can still have fresh flowers in your home. These white ones was leftover from a bigger bunch of mixed flowers and they lasted the longest. So when the other ‘hero-blooms’ died off, I kept these white chrysanthemums, cut them short and put them in a collection of small silver tea light holders on a mirrored tray. Not bad for a dark January display!
