Simple idea for cut flowers in a jam jar
Sometimes the simplest ideas can be so beautiful.
Take an old jam jar and fill it with cut flowers from the garden to brighten up a lonely corner of the room.
Pick whatever flowers you have in the garden like Scabiosa, lavender, carnation Pinks, cornflowers, verbena bonariensis, alchemilla mollis, which are all seen here. For it's bright green leaves and minty scent, I've added some apple mint. The soft, spiky balls are Eryngium - which will turn blue.
Add some twine for a decorative touch.
