Spring Flowers

Z and E helped me with flower arranging - they enjoyed cutting the stems to the right length, filling the vase with water and carefully arranging the flowers. At the end we were left with a few short-stemmed tiny ranuncula buds, which I was going to put in the compost - but Z and E wouldn't allow it! Instead they used two Bonne Maman jars (the kind you get at B&B's with an individual portion of jam) to make perfect, miniature vases. You probably can't tell from the photo but the jars are only 4cm high and the buds are teeny-tiny. They were very proud of their fairy flowers and have kept them on their bedside tables.
