Thanksgiving Would Not Be The Same Without Brussels Sprouts

Orange roses, dahlias, lisianthus and brussels sprouts

…would it? Either way, I’m wishing my American friends a very happy Thanksgiving. If you’re traveling, keep safe. If it’s just an everyday day for you, I hope these flowers will bring a little cheer.

I’m sharing this design, created by Patricia Murphy for this year’s Southport Flower Show, as part of Cee’s FOTD.

Plant material includes lisianthus, roses, hydrangea, French lavender, hypericum berries, thyme, allium, papaver seeds, heuchera, dahlia, dianthus, chrysanthemum, asters, twigs and brussels sprouts.

    Thank you for starting my Thanksgiving with a laugh! Thanksgiving for me is always the same in that no brussels sprouts are allowed; it appears to me they snuck in among those lovely flowers and are very proud of their mischief. Nothing like the unexpected to make something beautiful into a personality. Kudos to Patricia Murphy! Happy Thanksgiving to you, Susan, and to all your lively commenters!
