This was one of the last from the flower arranging and the one I enjoyed most. Apparently, this style is the newest thing in flower arranging.I re-did it for Christmas and I'll upload a picture of that later.

Latest from the flower-arranging.  I had a bit of a disaster coming out of the class the last evening, once I got outside, I was hit with a gust of wind which wrecked the whole arrangement. Thankfully, I was able to put it back together when I got home.  Its funny how you pick up on stuff once you get into this, the spiky branches are actually the dried up seeds from a dock plant, normally regarded as a weed but I was out for a walk on Sunday and thought it would look good in an arrangement and, lo and behold, it did!

By the way, the definition of a weed is 'a plant growing in the wrong place'. So, everything could be a weed or nothing either, it all depends on your perspective.

This is the second arrangement from the flower-arranging class.  I'll have to do something about my backgrounds!

I started a flower arranging class a few weeks ago and these are my first efforts. This one is in a basket and was to be viewed from above.

I was walking the dog up around the river this morning and all the wildflowers/grasses and weeds(??) were blooming so I picked a few added some calendula and white foxgloves from the garden and voila! I'm very pleased with this and it got me wondering why are some plants regarded as weeds and what makes something a weed as opposed to a flower?  I stopped trying to dig the dandelions and buttercups out of my flower beds as I had noticed that dandelions are one of the first plants to flower in spring and an early source of nectar for bees.   I bought 3 grasses for my garden and they don't seem to have taken, looking at the wild grasses I thought, why did I bother to buy something that grows freely anyway so the grasses won't be getting the chop again either.
