    Your fab flower series is making me face the fact – I do not have enough space in my flower beds to grow the cut flowers I want to – arrrrgh! Since when did bits of old field and verge suddenly look like my idea of the perfect aquisition!!

    I wouldn’t say I grew them as such – I have one plant which I, well, tolerate is probably the best word. I don’t like them much – that yellow and brown combo is a bit too Abigail’s Party for me. Mind you, I quite like the red one in your picture. Maybe I should broaden my mind a bit.
    I do like the seedheads, though – a lovely, velvety brown which I love tucked in amongst my silvery-pink spider chrysanths – and which I also use on my bird wreaths dipped in peanut butter and poppy seeds, like a kind of bird Fab lolly (Enough with the 1970s references now.) x
