A couple weeks ago, I wrote a post about Bonny Doon Garden Company and their world-famous posies. Now I’ve got a posy of my own sitting on my desk.
What makes these so lovely is not just the seniments they express, but also the way all these flowers and leaves come together in the vase. They’re chosen for their individual meanings, but they also come together to create a wonderfully interesting and natural bouquet. In this case, the stock, pine, and geranium leaves are all scented, but it’s not your typical flowery floral scent. It’s woodsy and spicy and outdoorsy. It smells like a garden. Who could resist these?
