As I’m sure you’ve heard everyone else in Europe complain, it’s very hot at the moment – and although it’s still not nearly as hot by Australian standards, I’ve been staying out of the city all week to avoid the heat. It’s lovely in the countryside at the moment and a lot of the days this week have been spent picking flowers with my grandfather. Some of you might have seen photos of his bouquets that I’ve posted on instagram and will already know that he has a great eye for composition when it comes to flowers!
He is also very good at making flower crowns and tried to teach me to make some – but I am absolutely useless at it, no good at all – so he was very kind to make me this one from the daisies and clover in the field near our house. I got a lot of strange looks wearing one out and about and one person even asked if I was getting married! Unfortunately flowers are very quick to wilt once they’ve been picked so the flower crown only lasted a few hours, but even so I thought it looked so much more lovelier than artificial ones, even if they are more practical.
