Fantastic fresh flowers: Kale.

Flowers are just beautiful. I always like to have a fresh bunch of flowers in the house, although it doesn't always happen. I picked up this amazing bunch of ornamental Kale yesterday and I'm loving the gorgeous contrast of the bright magenta with soft, delicate green.

Beautiful Kale flowers
They are really long lasting blooms, so hopefully I can keep these babies looking great for a little while to come. The florist at Pure Flowers was really helpful and gave me some tips to keep them looking great.

Always look for heads that have bright green outer leaves as they are the freshest blooms. Make sure you replace the water every day or two to keep them fresh, and pull off any outer leaves that are starting to go yellow. Here's hoping I can follow the rules and enjoy these pretties for a while!

  2. They are lovely :-)

    My mum always told me to put them outside at night (especially in winter when the house is heated) to give them a freshen up. Seems to work!

  3. Oooh, thanks Emma- great tip! Although out house is just as cold as the outside at the moment, with a section of roof missing and a busted heater we are just rugging up!
