May is the month when the garden really gets into its stride. And bringing a few flowers indoors is a simple way to celebrate the changes that are happening outside.
Little clusters of blooms can be quickly popped into tiny vases or jam jars to dot about the house: a little bunch on the kitchen table with a candle to add a touch of magic to a weekend meal; a few scented stems on the bedside table to bring a feeling of calm throughout the week.
These first home-grown, hand-picked posies are special;
full of the promise of summer to come.
