Friday Flowers

Auriculas, adored by the Victorian gardener who made special stands for them to protect their flowers from the rain, these were called Theatres.

There is one grower who every year at Chelsea Flower Show has a tiered stand covered in black velvet and each beautiful plant in its pot is framed by an ornate gold frame......truly a work of art.
I love their little floury faces and the deepest purple almost black petals of this little beauty.

Hope you have a lovely weekend, I'm off to teach a miniatures workshop on Saturday, perhaps someone will choose the Auriculas.
