Flower Arrangement in a Tea Cup


Yesterday was our local Horticultural Society show, I am on the committee (how that happened I am not sure but I really have a problem saying no to things...!) so was there all day. There were loads of beautiful flowers, vegetables, handicrafts and baking.

I entered 8 things and got prizes for my 3 handicrafts but nothing for anything else...

One of my un-placed things was a flower arrangement in a tea cup.

I used a tiny hydrangea head, thyme (I think!), mint and lavender. It smells amazing but the judge says it needs more foliage round the rim of the cup!

I might have to make a few more of these, I think I am in love!

Linking to some of these fab linky parties!
