Florists pottery

Pre market Friday and the pottery room is transformed
into a florists.
I pick many buckets of flowers during the week,
and store in the cool room.

Then I get them all out and start to make my bunches.
I get to look at all the colours and consider what will work. 
I love parsley flowers and choose to add the in mix
They have a fresh green look with delicate fireworks feel to them
Featured here with yellow correopsis and asparagus fern.

Real asparagus fern that would be edible asparagus if I kept 
it trimmed to ground level.
Just like the weeds, it gets away from me.
The blue larkspur has started to self seed in the flower garden.
I will encourage this.
Foxgloves are a new thing I am growing. 
Unsure if they will cope with our climate.
Alstromerias do very well at this time of year.
Shame that yellow is not a popular flower colour.
Here is a new alstromeria that I could not resist 
at the nursery this week.
It is called Indian summer.
Prefers part shade which is good as I have a spot like that.
Ready and waiting.
The  view from the pottery door
Not the vibrant colour of early spring...
I will have to find something for summer.
