When the grandchildren came to visit we went for a walk and they picked some small flowers from our garden. This was the creative result of that activity. They removed most of the stem and floated the flowers in bowls of water. Here is the result. This activity has now become a routine activity.
I planted hollyhocks for the first time this year and they are tall stalks with multiple blooms that look very similar to carnations. They are lovely, but they drop their beautiful blooms just when I think they are the prettiest. So I have been collecting them and floating them in my various assorted glassware that I never use anyway!
A recent storm passing through gave me all the blooms in the photo.
I think they look like elegant desserts or a fancy drink! You might even use them as place cards at a party.
