Simple pleasures.....



Like finding an extra large bunch of Carnations,  enough to fill two vase's ,bought for £1.41, reduced just because a few heads had snapped, and the best thing about Carnations is they last a long time.

  1. I love cut flowers, but I always buy them, to precious to take them from the garden, plus yours were a great bargain.

  4. Bargain. I love carnations, too. I have loved being able to take so many daffs from the garden but I couldn't resist the tulips I bought the other day.

  6. They do last a long time & even longer if you take the side stems off and root them in some water. Pot them up & grow them in the garden. They do surprisingly well xx

  7. That's a great find, I love fresh flowers but they are so expensive. Im hoping to have a cutting patch this year, for the price of a few packets of seeds, hopefully lots of bunches! :) xxx

  9. Very pretty bargain. I seldom buy cut flowers, but often receive some and I always pick the carnations over very carefully as often there are side shoots that can be potted up to root to get some free plants for the garden.

    1. I don't buy many fresh flowers, I have had a couple of bunches of daff's I buy some sometimes at the car boot, But I am going to have an area at by the greenhouse which I now have veg in, and that is going to be my area for cut flowers x

  10. you are so right, carnations last for ages. Sometimes I chuck them out even though they are still going strong, because I get sick of the sight of them! You got a corking bargain there.

    Before I forget, the plates in the previous post are GORGEOUS. I love them.

    1. Thankyou, I will be creating my own little area in the garden for cutting flowers so I can go out and snip a few when I like. I really love the plates, I love anything with a cherub xx
