Garden Art!!

Garden Art!!

A different type of creating today!!! I thought I'd bring some of the garden into the house and studio today... with florists closed and supermarket trips limited, there's no better time to get resourceful!

I love cut foliage and it can look just as pretty as a floral display, plus of course, gardenfoliage is freeeee!! They look particularly effective in separate vases and jars too, so go and have a play!!

I've used some of the cuttings from an acer tree I pruned at the weekend, some wild garlic from our local woods and one of my favourites, euphorbia. I love it's fresh zingy colour and it goes with everything! It's amazing what you can find when you have more time to look! 

So there's a challenge for you - see what you spot on your next walk or in your garden. Go on, dig out some jars and go see what you can find!! 

The longer I do this, the more I'm tempted to start a new floral piece.... 

Watch this space!!
