I’ve enjoyed the wildflowers so much this season that on a few of occasions I’ve picked some bunches and brought them inside. This has caused much amusement for Atef, his family and the neighbours who see me as the flowers that I’m picking I’m actually rescuing from being sheep food. I don’t care that they are weeds as I still think they look pretty, but for the locals they certainly don’t fall into the category of flowers that are vase worthy as they are not roses or lilies or flowers that you would grow in a garden. Put it down as just one more thing that the weird Western women does to give the locals a laugh!
Anyway I’ll let you judge for yourself whether you think that they add a splash of colour and look beautiful in a vase. The large bunch I think were a variety of wild sage (happy to be corrected) and had a lovely fragrance as well.
