This week's and other week's flowers

I knew it would be useful to have a finished post up my sleeve for when life became too busy.

I do like a nice gladdy.

Erect gerberas, and they stayed erect for nearly a week.

 Lilies might look nice, but they can pong terribly, never mind the staining pollen from their stamens.

Natives, for a change.

    1. Jayne, with a lot of cross breeding, I am sure.

  2. Those lilies are the ones that do me in with their pollen. Solid migraine within an hour. To get rid of the pong, just snip off the tiny pollen heads. The lilies will look just as nice.

    1. River, we did snip later and it helped a bit. I don't think we will have them for a while.

    1. Flowers and the arranging of them is household management's job Grace. There have been non erect gerberas in the past but the technique seems to be very good now.
