Florets - Floral Quote - # 52 - by Selina Lake




"Any vessel that can hold water can be used to house your floral delights, from a fine cut-crystal vase to a plastic jug. A group of empty milk bottles can house single roses, for example, while a glass jar could be filled with handfuls of wild flowers straight from the field. Flea markets, auction houses and car boot/yard sales are good hunting grounds for unusual vases - a vintage carafe that has lost its stopper can still offer a home to a sprig of cherry blossom, while a chipped teacup gets new life when filled with palest pink peonies."
