Wild posy

The air is full of beautiful smells that waft on April breezes and so I have brought a little of this free pomander back into my home. This brightly coloured nosegay has been gathered locally in the winding, rambling lanes in rural Worcestershire.

Wild Posy


Posy close-up

This fragrant posy comprises of English Bluebells, Honesty, Lady Smock, Forget-me-not, Dandelion and  Greater Stitchwort. All of these flowers last a very long time providing that the stems are cut fairly short – this seems to be the secret of keeping cut wild flowers looking fresh and smelling sweet.
