With not much in my garden on a very windy winters day here in the Southern Highlands, Australia I found some very, very prickly Thistle flowers growing wild just ready to bud and blow away and with some very thick gloves and a pair of long secateurs I picked some for my styling images.
I hope you enjoy my images as much as I enjoyed photographing them.
I have now bottled them in huge glass containers for the next wedding or special styling job - maybe to blow onto the bride as she leaves the church.
mmmmmmm how exquisite........ I can just see it now.....
So here they are protected in glass in my sun room.
Start by keeping the flowers under glass, then sprinkle a few on the napkins and table. They pick up the light beautifully as well.
I have used my glass plates with the Thistles and old linen and and few of my favourite pieces of silver. The white orchids are fake and as I didn't have time to bake a cake as well, I put them in instead. Great when your on a diet !
I am so glad to be back in this wonderful Blog world after being away for so long. I have really missed everyone and I can't wait to catch up on all your stories. I hope you all have a fantastic day where ever you are and I do look forward to hearing from you soon.
Oh my goodness - It has just started snowing outside,
I told you it was cold here...... brrrrrrrr - I'm just off to get my camera.
