Jam jar flowers

hogweedhogweed Central ScotlandPosts: 3,871

would anyone like to join in this thread which is posting a photo every month (or whenever) of the flowers in your garden arranged in a jam jar? Everyone has a jam Jar! 

i very rarely pick flowers from the garden for the house but I thought this season I would change that. 

I will will go out to the garden soon and get mine just to start it off although i think it will be mainly foliage!

    Sorry it isn't a jam jar! Choisya I broke off my plant 2 days ago (mea culpa!) now filling my living room with its scent.

    What a great idea for a thread, hogweed!

    I've got a Branston Pickle jar, newly washed out.....but there's no way I'm going out there today, in the current weather!  But when it calms down, I promise I will! image

    Great idea.  However, the tree peony is over and the wisteria has nearly all gone over and I have no inherited perennials for picking so I'll just keep ane eye for now and join in when I can.

    Just had to go out and buy jam jars for mint jelly!

    I WAS BRAVE!  Bet I get double pneumonia now!

    But the sun came out for 5 minutes, so here we go.....astonishing how many different flowers there are out there!

    Hellebores, myosotis, pulmonaria, mahonia, narcissi, chaenomeles, cherry blossom, lunaria, Kerrie Dumplin's ( drumstick primulas )....

    Got a house full of pollen beetles, now!
