My garden has a haze of blue in the flowerbeds at the moment, Forget me nots seed themselves so prolifically that even if I think I have pulled them all up before they set seed, up they come again the following year. And I'm delighted that they do, so pretty as a blue mist, even prettier close up.
The little chunky blue pottery bottles are from the 1920s-30s and believe it or not were used to hold Ronux furniture polish, so much nicer than today's spray cans.
Just a note about the white jug from last week, I bought it in Homebase (a large home and garden diy store for those of you not in England) about five years ago, it wasn't very expensive but I loved the shape and it has become one of my favourite flower containers.
I'm up in London this weekend exhibiting at the Kensington Dolls House Festival....wish me luck!
Have a lovely weekend
