You never know what you might “need” when you are shopping. About three weeks ago I purchased a couple of bunches of asters which most certainly were not on my list. At £1.30 a bunch who could resist.
Much to everyone’s surprise they were not put in a vase, instead they were hung upside down in the kitchen to dry. After a few days the grumbles started and by the end of week two, outright hostilities: what’s happening with these, they’re ugly!
Well yesterday I snipped the heads off and threw out the stalks.
I have quite a bundle which I have used to put in some of my glass tea light holders. Mixed with poppy heads and nigella they make an interesting gathering.
Cathy (the host of IAVOM) you saw these hanging around in my kitchen, what do you think?
