It’s Pretty!

Sometimes when I’m at work, the unthinkable will happen: a gorgeous flower head will get snapped off at the top of it’s stem, leaving it unsuitable for arrangements. It kills me to throw these beautiful things away, so I stuff them in my lunch bag and take them home with me. My boss thinks I’m silly, but oh well. My boss is amazing. 😀

How ere it is, with a little imagination, these otherwise forsaken blooms can be displayed and enjoyed. I usually just hunt around for an interesting container to float them in. If I have some greens to go with them, like this lovely seeded eucalyptus, even better!

So simple, but so elegant! Give it a try yourself-even if it means hacking off flowers heads on purpose.
