Living Flowers

Pretty as a picture

A mix of flowers. I have used:
• Alchemilla mollis (lady’s mantle)
• Spray Chrysanthemum
• Clematis
• Cosmos
• Hypericum
• Spray roses
• Small pink roses such as Rosa ‘Heaven’
• Thin adhesive tape
• Shallow, straight-sided glass container – this one is 8cm high and 25cm wide

1Make a criss-cross of tape across the opening of the container.
2 Fill two-thirds of the container with water.
3 Insert your round forms, such as the roses and Cosmos.
These have the dominant form, so ensure there is an even balance
across the design before you add further flowers.
4 Finish with a mix of flowers of choice.
