The cherry branches that I cut 10 days or so ago are now in full flower.
All you do is cut the twigs/branches and put them into water. Once I found some peach prunings lying in my father's garden - they had been there about a week - we brought them indoors, recut the stem ends and put them in a vase - within a week there were beautiful pink flowers.
The cherry is "arranged" in a big pottery vase and under it are some narcissi left over from a photo shoot earlier this week.
Some in a floristy clump
and others in stoneware bottles
I have an enormous collection of vases - as you might expect - but to be honest 9 times out of 10 I end up with a few stems each in a line of bottles.
Please excuse the weird blurry window - it is a shot double glazed aluminium framed horror that will be replaced when we extend the house this year - its funny though, having lived with it for 5 years, I no longer notice it until I take photographs.
