Here is a photo of one of my latest Baskets of Flowers hope you like it.
The Flowers are real and artificial – the real ones are Geraldton Wax and Lantana with some Palm Leaves at the back, the Roses are the Artificial Flowers but they make the arrangement look very real.
So you can easily make a Basket of Flowers by choosing a nice Basket (not too large) then use some (Wet Oasis) in a plastic bag – so that water does not come into your basket. If you do not have any Wet Oasis the use a suitable vase to hold water that will fit into your basket.
Arrange your Flowers with some tall leaves at the back (no need for Palm Leaves) some nice ones from a hedge or young branches from a tree will be great. Then next put the tallest flowers in so that you have a nice background and build up with the smaller ones coming to the front.
Sometimes if you have not got enough flowers put some artificial ones in to make a nice show.
There you are then…..that could be a nice project for yourself as a table arrangement or to give as a gift to a friend for a special occasion.
Here is a Poem for today:

* Just a simple Basket of Flowers today *
With Bougainvillea and some yellow Lantana.
Sometimes you only need a few cuttings of flowers with some leaves from the garden to make a lovely arrangement.
I hope you can find some kind of flower from your garden or maybe purchase some from the shop – to make a special arrangement for your kitchen or lounge room.
It is amazing how flowers can lift the spirit and we can receive some joy from their perfume also from their presence in our home.
Even one flower or a couple of small cuttings of green leaves in a vase or glass can be very nice.
In the kitchen if you put a sprig of Mint in a glass or other Herb that you specially like somewhere near the sink it is really nice to touch one of their leaves between your fingers and smell their particular perfume. It can give you a lift in your spirit while washing up…..etc., Remember you can also eat one of the leaves off of your special Herb, they are very good for us.
Here is a tasty recipe: (Have you ever made these)?

Psalm: 133 verse 1
Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

Thought you may like a Poem – so here we are:-
“Pansy Flower ”
Hello, I am a Pansy Flower, with a face upon my Petals.
My face is full of colour – Purple, Red and Yellow.
You can see my face if you look quite closely.
My face looks to the sky.
Although I am beautiful I am really quite shy.
I hide among the taller plants, they are so high and lofty.
But I don’t mind a bit, because I’ll never – ever be lonely.
We usually grow in clusters you see, us dearest little ’Pansies’.
Children love to peer at us, they wonder if we can see them.
Yes of course we can.
We see the Sun, we feel the breeze, the lovely refreshing rain.
We love to grow in our little clumps and we cheer you up
if you feel down in the dumps.
I have no arms or legs you know but I have good strong
So grow me in your garden beds or put me in a pot.
Just remember not to put me somewhere that is really too hot.
Remember I am your little Pansy friend
with a beautiful friendly face. …
*Hope you have a lovely Day Today*
