Over the past year and a half, I’ve been growing more flowers and herbs and playing around with drying them. This year I noticed different shapes and colours in the meadows and gardens and created two new wild dried posies. I named this one moonlight because of the blues and whites and also because of the globe shapes of the echinops and drumstick scabious seedheads, both new ones for me to grow. I also collected meadow grasses earlier this year to keep their early greens, as well as collecting the reds and golds later in the year. All of these inspired this wild dried posy which reminds me of the stillness of water at night, the calm of lavender, and the perfect round of the full moon. It goes beautifully with my smokey sloe blue ceramic vase and looks great in a simple glass milk bottle or even a tin can.
Posies include a mix of dried drumstick scabious, echinops, verbena, white yarrow, lavender, poppy seedheads, marjoram and green meadow grasses. As they are individually made up, each posy will vary slightly and there are only a few available.
Each posy comes with a handwritten card explaining what flowers and grasses are in your posy and tied with blueish purple raffia to complement the colours in the posy. They are carefully packaged in wood wool and a large box to ensure the blooms aren’t damaged in the post.
Size: ca 25 to 30 flower and grass stems per posy
Colours: Blues, Greens, Purples and Whites
