First attempt at displaying flowers in Oasis.

First attempt at displaying flowers in Oasis.

Hope mum would have liked these flowers .....the Chrysanths were from a shop but the mini daffs(Tete a Tete) , berries and grass flower head are from my garden. Very little in my garden at the moment but, hopefull, as the years go on and I continue to plant the new borders, I will have more.
I've never attempted arranging flowers in oasis before but we saved the basket(with oasis) we had delivered for the funeral and I will put it back on the grave tomorrow, on my way to football.

Yellow white and blue if I can but no blue available in garden or at shop.

I'm sure she would have loved your arrangement Paul. It means more when you have gone to the trouble of arranging it yourself too.

I always planned to do this because it seemed silly to just throw the basket away when flowers faded but, I didn't know how well it would turn out but I'm happy with it.

Well done, Paul, a lovely thought.

Thanks Siris! I'll enjoy taking them to the cemetery, more than just a bunch of blooms.

How lovely it looks. You even found room for those dainty daffodils - my mum loved them.

They (the Tete a Tete mini daffs)are nice and short and sturdy so don't flop.

Thanks Homebird. I did a couple more arrangements in the basket but with bought flowers as my garden is so new. Hopefully, later in the summer I may be able to pick enough from my garden to make a decent bunch.

My mum wasn't really a gardener but she always had flowers and plants in the garden!
