Keep it fun and keep it inexpensive would be my motto for most things, but especially for flower displays.And keep it colourful !! .Here are some inexpensive flowers I can recommend: Californian poppies( the bright orange) - super easy to grow annuals, and mostly self seeding once you have them.Crocosmia-a tuber/bulb ( the red flower) - almost a weed , once it is established- and fabulous ground cover.
AND , my almost favorite because of the drooping dark red tassels - Amaranthus- an annual which needs a bit of care - but really worth it... and you don't have to go really expensive for a vase- a simple Killner jar works just fine.
Here's another shot so you can see why I love Amaranthus.The vertical acccent just helps to tie everything together with all the other shapes in the flowers.
And just in case you thought I only love bright and bold, and that you have to grow everything yourself- I would also recommend keeping your eyes open when you go for a walk and collect what you think that looks interesting.So you can do a nice display for practically nothing.
Like this for instance:
Don't you just love nature and all the amazing shapes there are!I know...conkers ( chesnuts )..feels too much like autumn .. we won't go there ,hahaha!!
But marvel at this design!
All so pretty and for free!
So a win- win- my favourite situation!
Whatever you do, I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
