Anyway today's little rant is about the flower stand which caught my eye this morning. Initially I saw these decidedly hideous Sansevierias with multicoloured flock tips - of course nothing much more than rooted cuttings. And at £8! Who in their right mind would want such a hideous adornment in their house? I then walked around the stand and was horrified to see how many of their bunches of otherwise good quality flower had been tampered with in some ludicrous way. Dyed flowers never look right and certainly not natural. If you want blue flowers why not delphineums or scabious rather than blue chrysanthemums? And why on earth would anyone want flowers sprinkled with glitter.
|Not terribly clear but its glitter not dew!|
Of course over the years gardeners and plant breeders have worked persistently to improve on nature and give us many wonderful garden plants but these offerings are hideous!
