Friday Flowers

Earlier this week I bought some blue hyacinths just coming into bud, they were planted in small plastic pots which fitted perfectly inside this old Willow Pattern serving dish. I didn't want to replant them in the dish as it has no drainage holes.
But what to use to cover the tops of the ugly plastic pots......Moss, came the answer.......but I don't have any......but the lawn has lots!
So armed with a rake I raided the lawn of some of its moss, If you can see the odd bit of grass you know the reason why!
The Moss camouflaged the tops of  the pots perfectly and to add a touch of Christmas sparkle I added small mercury glass ornaments that I bought last week.

In the warmth of the house the flowers are already opening, filling the room with their heady scent.

Have a lovely weekend
