The Nosey Posy - 19

Beat those January blues!

This posy is guaranteed to cheer you up! Beautiful blue iris, orange ranunculus and lovely fluffy mimosa, mixed with British eucalyptus, ruscus and lichen-covered hawthorn twigs.

A sensitive plant

Did you know, mimosa is part of the pea family. A particular species of mimosa (Mimosa pudica), folds its leaves up when it is touched as a protection mechanism. You can sometimes buy it in small pots in the local garden centre. Look out for it - kids love it!
