If you like the sweet fragrance of nosegays you will love flower baskets. These were for sale at a friend's nursery. They don't dry out as fast as terracotta...they look great on a table top like a living, wafting bouquet. The closer to the nose the better. They also have a country cottage and a victorian feel. Two opposite poles come together in the form of flowers. Tea; anyone?
When the pansies start to fizzle in the heat of July simply remove and add something else with fragrance like lavender or the curry plant. Do you see the blown-glass green, toadstool in the one above. These also make great fairy gardens for kids of all ages. Use your imagination and have fun.
