Flower on wall

We have now picked the strawflowers (Xerochrysum bracteatum) for the house, we grow them every year in the vegetable garden and just as they are about to open we cut them and hang them around the house, it gives the house a bit of a lift for the winter, and then this time of the year the ones from last year go on the fire and the new ones come in, the important thing is not to let them get wet before you cut them, they can rot on the wall, we got them cut just before the weekends rain.

  1. I really appreciated those bouquets of yours, placed here and there at Great Dixter when we were there in the winter. The colors are great.
