Time got away from me last month and I missed participating in Floral Friday. Life's pretty full-on here at the moment, and I nearly let the same thing happen this month....but I decided not to. I've said it before, but one of the things I love about this project is that it does make you stop and smell the flowers. Or pick them, in this case.
I didn't realise that our veggie patch was such a beautiful place until I went up there this morning with the goal to come back with a bunch of flowers. This bunch is not only pretty but is so fragrant too. The fruity sage (the little red flowers) smells divine, mixed with lavender and the single rose you see in the centre. The rose is a recent purchase and has the most beautiful scent - similar to that of a Mr. Lincoln, but not quite as overwhelmingly perfumed. I think it may become a firm fragrant of mine.
Also in my posy are the flowers of cinnamon basil (it doesn't smell that pleasant but the other flowers mask it), a little daisy, leaves of yarrow and some pink flower that I can't remember the name of.
All in all I'm very pleased with my efforts, and I think the little vase wrapped in brown paper makes it extra sweet.
