Flowers!

I love flowers!
Especially at this time of year. The first bunch of dafodils are a symbolic purchase showing that Spring is here at last. But i’ve been ignoring the fact that most flowers are flown from the other side of the world and grown using nasty pesticides.

The farmers market im Stroud sell beautiful local seasonal flowers but not so many through these cold months, and sometimes we like to send the mother or mother-in-law a little birthday bouquet, so i was very happy to find Wiggly Wigglers…

And here is the amazing ‘My Zero Waste’ blog on flowers

I did buy the most beautiful little bunch of snowdrops from a lady in the market, they were framed by two ivy leaves and i wish i’d taken a photo. Maybe i’ll  find some more this Saturday…

  1. Thank you so much for linking to our post about Wiggly Wigglers. I LOVE what you are doing here and wish you all the best with inspiring others to make small but significant changes. I didn’t realise we were neighbours either; what fun! Perhaps we’ll actually get to meet one day and put the world right 😉
