Hello sunshine!


Feverfew

I've spent the day with the sun on my face. It seems a while since that's happened. With a forecast for more sunshine this week, I'm going to try to make the most of it. I've been one of these lockdown cold water dippers and even the sea is tempting when the sun's out and the wind's dropped!

The posy this week hints of warmer, sunny days with the addition of dainty 'daisy' feverfew (Tanacetum parthenium) and sweet williams grown under glass in Cornwall. They are a treat at this time of the year and give the posies a fresh look in these winter months.

What's in the posy?

Tanacetum, alstroemeria, winter honeysuckle, winter jasmine, narcissi, sweet william, horse chestnut buds, sarcococca, box, pittosporum, hazel catkins, camelia.

What's scented?

Winter honeysuckle, narcissi, sarcococca.
