December with its reds and golds and temperatures in the 60's was so last month. January has brought us grey skies, freezing winds and the first snow/ice of the year. Scarves and boots are being worn for warmth not fashion just as the stores fill with spring clothes and sandals.
And I think we're all agreed that wax flower is the flower of 2012, much as ranunculus was the flower of 2011.
I say double your pleasure and use them together.
And if you happen to be a florist and have a stem of black raspberry handy, add that to the mix.
A heady mix it is, those tiny wax flowers pack a powerful punch of scent. But just in case my stuffy nose can't catch it, I filled a jar with a few bulbs. A tete a tete, some tulips and a hyacinth, a handful of green moss and a crystal found by GG on yesterday mornings dog walk.
I walk down the same streets. All I see are early blooming forsythia and an occasional fox. GG always finds a treasure.
Looking forward to coming to your house and seeing what treasures you have for us. I'm also hoping for a cup of tea and a few Advil.
Clementines can only do so much:)
