Home Sweet Home.. Something to brighten us up..
I'm home!! Back to the cold and nearly 2kg heavier.. *sigh* I knew gobbling up all those food while on holiday will come back and haunt me! Anyhow, I thought I'll put up some gorgeous floral happiness to cheer us all up. Nothing beats colourful flowers to cheer you up on a gloomy day..
Received these from some of our guests a few weeks ago. Gorgeous stargazers. Amazingly all these flowers were sitting on just two stalks. Beautiful to look at and I love the scent and I really love how the buds were opening one or two at a time per day... Lasted for over 2 weeks!
Only problem is, the stamens are a pain. I made sure I got rid of the stamens as the powdery red tend to stain (notice the powdery form at the top of the petals) and I was told if you get rid of the stamens, the flowers tend to last longer
Nothing beats a bunch of colourful flowers!
Notice these flowers are painted as well..
Have a lovely week all... I'm about to head back to bed.. ;) Feeling jet lag.... Whoops!
