My Favourite Flower - Ingunn Sandvoll
One of the great things about blogging is that you get to meet people from all over the world. My guest for this month's favourite flower column, Ingunn Sandvoll is from Norway, and I have been a big fan of her photography for a while now; beautiful, simple, and atmospheric, I would definitely recommend checking them out.
What is your favourite flower, and why?
Oh, this is completely impossible to answer! Flowers that emerge in different seasons, are always welcomed! Crispy tulips, ranunculus, peonies and roses are all big favorites.
I am delighted by the first signs of spring appearing in the forest, especially when anemones start to spring up. I love their fresh smell.
I am also weak for the smell of eucalyptus, and I either place them in a big glass vase or make a wreath that smells heavenly! Sometimes I hang twigs in the shower, it gets the day off to a good start.
Flowers for me, are the symbol of life, and I can never get enough! Going into a florist, and finding cut flowers that I haven't come across before, is pure bliss. So, as you can see Emma, there is more than one answer to this question.
How do you like to display them in your home?
I tend to have flowers in clear, clean glass vases, I often cut the stems quite short, as I prefer them that way. I also have some vintage vases, my favourite is a vintage vase in mint that I collected from a market in China. From time to time I also make wreaths, and when a flower is past it's best, I like to dry the buds in a barrel.
