What a lovely arrangement ☺

The foliage of Valerian works well as a sort of 'mesh substitute' as it sits across the top of the jug and holds the other stems apart. :)

That jug is great for flowers Karen.

I seem to be collecting Jugs Linda! I do love flowers in a jug. Much less formal than a vase. :)

I collect jugs, but usually small ones. I love them - I have two or three for flowers. I agree that flowers look great in them. This is a lovely one.

Thanks Melchi. I bought a small hand made one in Moray in April when we were there, it wasnt expensive, but it makes the mass produced ones look a bit....well, cheap! I love them all though!

When I was younger, I used to favour guite formal flower arrangements. Now I much prefer a bunch of flowers in a jug or simple vase. I like jugs filled with just one type of flower as well. I still occasionally spend some time on an arrangement, though, especially in the hall. ( "entrance", that is, not "banqueting" or "great"!)

lol! Yes I agree...a single type in a jug is lovely too. It's also much more fashionable now isn't it...the 'informal' look. Sarah Raven has done a lot to promote it, and there are several commercial businesses getting 'English' flowers to people by mail order now. I love it....I wonder when Florists will begin to catch on though..they are still doing the same old thing...up here anyway.
