I love flowers! I cut flowers, stems, and seed heads, and gather pinecones, leaves, and all manner of natural materials from my garden and allotment, to bring indoors all through the year. Seasonal flowers brighten my home, and bring cheer to my day.
We’re fortunate in Great Britain to have four seasons to delight in, each one distinct. They offer us special moments, opportunities and sensations that we look forward to each year, making each season particularly special. Seasonal flowers are so significant, just like seasonal food we rejoice in their arrival, celebrating their colours, fragrance, and beauty.
All daffodils are wonderful as cut flowers; it’s especially wonderful to enjoy the heady, deliciously sweet scent of the fragrant types indoors. Some of the tall or large flowered, heavy headed daffodils, the double flowered types, do much better as a cut flower, they benefit from the protection of being admired in a vase indoors, as their stems are often damaged by the wind or rain outside.
I love flowers. I cut flowers, stems and leaves to bring indoors all year round. It’s lovely to enjoy seasonal flowers, which often flower for just a short while every year, somehow this makes the flowers even more precious. I appreciate and value what’s in season now, in the UK we have beautiful, British grown cut flowers and plants that we all can enjoy if we know where to find them.
