Cloud juice, straight up with a twist.

Thankfully the current weather is providing the perfect beverage for thirsty plants and flowers.
It seems that even during the wettest 'drought' on record in the UK and with hosepipe bans still in force you have to choose your moments carefully to grab some fresh cut flowers from the garden.
In between downpours today I ran out to see what I'd been missing in bloom.

  1. Hello Paul:
    And, what a delightfully pretty bouquet you managed to collect from the garden. It has been the most curious of weathers with you, but this marvellous spring collection of blooms is testament to the fact that many plants are thriving in these conditions.The striped leaf is a touch of brilliance!

    Thank you so much for becoming a Follower.

  9. Gorgeous bouquet, artfully arranged in casual rustic elegance. I too love the variegated leaves, tucked back on themselves, anchoring the offering.

  12. Paul, just the kind of casual bouquet I would love to receive - I'm not into florist formals! The fern fronds and folded variegated leaves are as beautiful as the flowers. Pinks and purples are my favorite..........and I see an English bluebell tucked in there, perfection!

    Hopefully we can see the garden soon! I've just shared my latest Spring blooms - hope you'll take a peek!
