Beautiful Gifts for Sale
...to give or to keep!
Heirloom Trudi Poppy
You will swoon over this poppy, which is originally from Slovakia. Large pink petals and lavender eyes float on 2’-3’ stems. Huge seed heads are filled with thousands of rich poppy seeds. Bees love to swim in the small ocean of pollen-laden anthers inside each flower. Tiny glass phials containing well over 200 seeds will be more than enough to grow your own plants and harvest thousands of additional seeds to scatter in your garden for a glorious display the following spring. This will keep the tradition going, as we are doing here, of sharing with your gardening friends.
Mary’s Fleurs Séchées
Fleurs séchées are delicate dried flowers. These exquisite arrangements are elegantly presented for gift giving, but so lovely you might want to keep for yourself. Here is a picture of a member’s dining room being used for drying stems and flowers. Flowers are suspended from the chandelier, hung from drawer knobs and pulls, and all over the table, itself. Messy, yes, but you will agree - a very pretty messy. These arrangements will be made by members of The Southborough Gardeners.
Gift items were made possible by the generosity of Trudi Bessom and Mary Coldwell – both valued and treasured members of this garden club. We thank them.
