Flowers are something that never fail to brighten my mood, even when it’s rainy and windy outside. They somehow manage to make me feel better when I have them in my flat. My favourites are sweet peas but you don’t often find them in the shops to buy, so this week I’ve gone for some lovely purple irises with a jet of golden yellow down the middle. I arranged them in individual stems in empty Kopperberg bottles and lined them up on the windowsill in my kitchen. I love using empty bottles and jars as vases, especially if they’ve got labels or writing on them. I think they look a lot more natural. They really lighten up the room and make me smile whenever I come in.
