Had a really lovely morning with my friend Katie at the garden centre. First there were these beauties:
why is it that sunflowers always look as if they're smiling? There they were nodding away in the sunshine looking pretty pleased with themselves.
Then there were these:
now I know these have a 'real' name but we know them as SnapDragons. If you squeeze them in the right place, their little 'mouths' open. It's a real childhood memory, they grew in the long hot summers in a border at the side of our house.
More inspiration - I can just see these as felt flowers, with their lovely fringy petals,
couldn't resist taking a picture of these -
much easier to keep than the others and don't need much watering. xx
