True That.

In other news, The Garden is still producing blooms, even in Old Testament Style Conditions and with the care of a very lazy brown thumb.

Fresh Flowers

January 27, 2012 § 1 Comment

There are few things that brighten up a room more than fresh flowers. I love the way they make a home feel alive, loved and lived in and they’re something I treat myself to regularly. Most of the time I buy them from farmers markets or florists but some I grow myself. Now I’m not much of a gardener, but even I can manage a posy of zinnias, dahlias or poppies to brighten up the bathroom sink.

My Mum is one very talented gardener (definitely not a genetic trait) who grows the most incredible (award winning!) roses on the property where she and my Dad live near Bollon, QLD. I don’t have many good photos of them, but take my word for it, they are stunningly beautiful.
