Like most girls I love fresh flowers, I don't buy them every week though.

I had to pop up Asda for some milk, I just couldn't leave these behind.






That is the cheapest price I have ever seen flowers.
Okay there are lots which went right into the garden waste but tidied up they were ok.






Note to myself I must look out for some more vases at the car boot sale, mine are very small and I only have the two.

With one vase short, a look in the jam jar cupboard.

I found a coffee jar and then looked in my ribbon box,  just the job.




Some beautiful blooms for just 30p.

  7. I love flowers but they are a bit of a luxury where I live. They make a room smell heavenly. Not sure what the shops do here with them when they get past their best but have never seen any reduced. Love all three bunches and your home made vase!

    1. SandyExpat, if you don't see flowers you like or can afford, then use leaves and berries from the garden (if you have leaves and berries in your garden.) Just something that is fresh and 'alive' can look good, it doesn't always have to be flowers.

    2. Hi Sandy they are a luxury for me, I don't buy them that often, but I always have some nice house plants.

  8. What bargains. I thought a bunch of double daffs for £2 a bunch in Waitrose was a bargain, so I bought two, but your 30p a bunch takes some beating! Love the deep red roses and the red gingham check ribbon matches them beautifully! Attention to detail is everything, choosing the right containers is as important as the right flowers! They all look great!

  10. what a fabulous bargain. I agree, even if you had to chuck some, still completely worth the money.

  11. What a bargain, you can't go wrong for that price. Chrysanthemums last for ages so they're double the bargain. I love your coffee jar vase too, just goes to show that you don't have to spend a fortune on any part of the display and it still looks fabulous.

  12. I've never seen such bargain flowers here, but I do treat myself now and again in Lidl - their bunches of fresh flowers are cheap and last for ages. But your roses are gorgeous and your be-ribboned coffee jar is fantastic. Good thinking!
