Shortly after Easter my lovely husband took me to Barcelona for a long weekend. I couldn’t help but notice these dried flowers in the flower markets – so pretty and only a Euro a bunch.
These bright little dried flowers are each only about 1cm across.
I spend as much time in the garden as I can at this time of year and couldn’t resist planting these two by my front door: blue corydalis and pink bleeding hearts, a vibrant combination!
But violas are my favourite flowers because of their pretty faces, and I grow them every year. I particularly enjoy drying them by pressing them, and this time last year I experimented with crystallising them too.
