I love cut flowers for the house. I know that pot plants are more sensible but there is something about a bunch of flowers which makes me feel wonderful.
The trouble is that if I am not careful my purse suffers. Most of the time if I buy flowers I buy alstromeria because they are not too expensive and they last well. I also buy spray chrysanthemums, (especially white ones) for the same reason and one bunch of chrysanthemums makes several vases.
Yesterday when I was in Tesco I saw these glorious irises – the photograph doesn’t actually do justice to their colour. And they were in the Reduced For Quick Sale bucket – reduced from £3 to 95p. Irresistible!
