Lots of Pink


Bright pink double primroses was more then I could resist!

To make the arrangement first line an old basket with plastic.
Put the pots in the basket and hide the pots with moss. 
Or take the plants out of their pots and plant in the basket with fresh compost. Cover soil with moss.
Water when soil feels dry and spray the moss with a mister to keep it looking fresh.
It is probably advisable to put the basket on a tray or similar to protect any surfaces.
If you put it in a cool place during the night it will last longer.
The arrangement will last for a few weeks and then you can plant them out in the garden.

Tie a pretty pink ribbon around the basket.

Presto!
You have an almost instant spring flower arrangement.

Then - add a few girly pink things to finish off the arrangement!!

I adore this, I love all the different shades of pink you used to pull off such an amazing still. It looks so fresh ready to garden or the prize after one has been in the garden. Gorgeous!!!

Uhmmmmmm vilket läckert arrangemang!! Såklart jag tycker färgen är fin också- rosa är ju verkligen min favoritfärg (oberoende av vad modet "bestämmer"!;-)...). Men framförallt din bild, ditt arr och de ting du valt!!
