Look what @primulafloralstyling inspired, she foraged beside the road and a few other gardens and I started with bracken because I copious amounts of it and added to it.
Strap yourself for some bracken spam -I love it. #nosuchthingasuglybracken#simpsoncottage
December 3. Growing your own cutflowers from seed. ❇️ There is a lot to be said for growing your own cutflowers. The choice in flower seed varieties is amazing and you can grow a LOT of flowers from a packet of seeds. I love that you can watch them grow in your garden AND cut as many as you like for your home or to give away as gifts. ❇️ Ever since we started growing our own cutflowers I stopped buying flowers from the store because to me there is nothing as beautiful as flowers that I have sown, planted and harvested from our garden. Also many times flowers from the store are flown in from other countries or sometimes even other continents which I think is just not necessary! ❇️ Like many other people who grow their own flowers I love looking at seed catalogues in the middle of winter. I usually order my seeds online or buy them from garden centres, depending on the varieties. I usually only order a seed variety once. After that I harvest the seeds from our own plants. Almost all annuals are great seed producers. ❇️ The flowers will attract bees and butterflies who pollinate the flowers and the plants will start producing seeds. If you want your annuals to flower longer you have to remove all the dead flowers. If you don't do this the plant will start producing seeds and the plant will stop flowering because it's job is done. I like deadheading flowers, I think it's a fun job in Summer. ❇️ At the end of the season you can leave the last of the flowers on the plant to develop seeds. Remember seedpods have to ripen and they will only be ready when they are brown and dry. Harvest the seeds on a dry day and store them in paper bags (not plastic, they will rot if they are not fully dried.) You will have so many seeds you can share them with all your friends! I love sharing our seeds with other flower lovers. (There will be a giveaway of a selection of our flower seeds soon, I finally finished cleaning and organizing mine!) ❇️More about the difference between sowing annuals, biennials and perennials tomorrow! 😉
#FLOWERMEADOW цветы ручной работы.
❄️Я летаю! Я сверкаю!
И кружусь, кружусь, кружусь!
Я желанья исполняю
Тем, кому на нос сажусь!
Хочешь радости немножко?
Ну-ка, подставляй ладошки
И лови зимы пушинку –

Just imagining myself in a field of flowers, that is the inspiration behind the Meadow Medallion Necklace ❤️ Hangs on an 18” cable chain and has tiny, 18k yellow gold balls that are inlaid in the center of each flower. This was one of the last pieces I made as I working on this collection - when a bunch of great ideas started pouring out. As always thank you for looking, even by liking my posts you are support this small business of mine. ☺️😘 #corkieboltonjewelry#flowermeadow#marriageofmetal#medallionnecklace#oneofakindnecklace#ofakind#floralinspired
As some of you know, my dear hen has been very ill for the past couple months.
Sweet baby Nani passed away comfortably and peacefully at home on Monday at exactly 3:33pm 🙏 I was with her the whole day, softly talking and singing to her, giving her loving cuddles, keeping her company and comfortable. She had a final meal of papaya - her favorite, and enjoyed a rest in her favorite flower meadow in the sunshine with her sisters. I set up a special cozy peaceful area for her final moments, with lots of selenite and candles to help guide her way on. I was laying with her as she left her body, sharing eye contact with her moments before her final release 🙏 Nani was more than just a chicken to me, more than just a pet. She was/is a beautiful, gentle, profound spirit that I appreciate and Love so much, with the whole of my existence. She will be missed dearly 🙏 She will always be in my heart ✨💗✨
