~n. Unidentified Floral Object
Well after my little rant about the wholesaler never having any exciting varieties, this little number was a turn for the books. I must say I'll have to take back what I said....
What is it??? Well according to the label on the wrapper its a "Snijbl Stuk".
A quick google search revealed that "snijbloemen" means "cut flowers" in Dutch. So I'm no further forward with the identification of this particular specimen.
I mean lets face it, it looks like its related to a crocodile. Crossed with a cucumber. I tried putting it into a few arrangements but it just looked, well.....rude!
If you have any idea what this might be, get in touch - I'd love to know! Until then it shall be known as The Crocucumber. Or maybe The Cucumberdile.
And here's a little something I whipped up from the leftovers from last weekend. Anemones still going strong, skimmia, queen anne's lace, ranunculus, scabious pods, brunia, carnations. One big fat lovely amaryllis. The last red rose. (Terrible pictures I know, thanks to the current lack of camera I have to rely on my webcam.) I'm developing a new and controversial love for carnations. Mostly influenced by this clever pair.
