Simple Combinations – Friday Flowers

Simple flowers in simple vases are sometimes all that is required to make an ordinary area extraordinary. With their misty, milky colours in shades of greens and blues, these vases from Berry Red are just stunning and any flower combination would look great in them.

I love the simple mix of traditional red geranium and the white floribunda garden rose, put together in a vintage look green vase. Simple but with an unpretentious feel to it, the way flowers should be.

Here the mix of garden blooms, including a rose, cow’s parsley, campanula, and a poppy, makes for a charming display housed in a selection of blue and green opal vases.

Cow Parsley & Lilac – Friday Flowers

Get out outside quickly, the month of May is the time of year that I find England to be at her most beautiful. The trees are filling up with fresh lime-green leaves, the cow parsley is standing waist-high, meadows are overflowing with wild flowers and you can practically hear the grass growing. So having no flowers in your home, really, is no excuse. This weekend I’ll be having friends around and after a busy week there was not much time left for faffing about with pretty displays of floral arrangements, so I went bold and basic. Just fill large containers with a few stems of cows parsley and other vessels or jugs with lilac, ta-dah, flowers done.
