Flower Crown on Monday

You may or may not know that it's Garden Day UK on 10th May. Generally this is an opportunity to get together with friends and family, wear Flower Crowns and enjoy your garden. 
This year, of course, the getting together bit is going to be tricky but we are still encouraged to make flower crowns and enjoy our gardens. Let's hope the weather is good. This was a weekend of two halves here. Warm and sunny on Saturday and then cold and drizzly on Sunday which took me by surprise. We might have to enjoy our garden through the window. 
Florists are doing tutorials and videos and I'm posting a few pictures on Instagram this week. 

I made this Flower Crown using a birch twig base which was just two twigs bound round each other. Then I added little bunches of flowers and foliage tied on with string. There are many ways to make crowns but this is very easy. 

I hung up the first one I ever made and it dried in situ on the wall. Eventually, after about 2 years, I threw it away when it was really too faded and dusty.  That's why I'm showing this one here as I thought I'd do the same. 

We'll see how it dries, if it's awful it's off to the compost heap.

Obviously I'm expecting everyone to be making crowns next weekend and to be showing them off next Monday. (It doesn't matter if you are in the UK or not!)
Join in with Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to see what every one else has found to put In a Vase on Monday.

Oh alright, here is a picture of me wearing it
