The romance of flower filled meadows is truly magical, and maybe my love of watching a few too many Jane Austen movies maybe to blame...serious chick flick territory here guys sorry! And no I wasn't offended in any way by the movie adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, to be honest the more the merrier, and while you're at it add in all the Bronte Sisters with a side of Thomas Hardy and I'm a happy girl! So if Mr.GDD wants to do a 'Darcy' and throw himself into Lake Daylesford fully clothed, in period costume of course, who am I to argue?...That gives me an idea...another time maybe!

So with this in mind and with Valentine's Day beating down on us, it's the perfect time to celebrate the stunning cosmos flower. Floppy, sweet and full of cheery colour it's not hard to imagine why so many of us want garden paths and meadow lanes filled with them. Part of the Daisy family they are incredibly hardy though not keen on a hard frost (but neither am I), and are self seeding so you'll be able to enjoy them over and over.

It's hard not to smile, is this not the most romantic bouquet? All those rosy hues are just bursting to add joy to someone's special day...

 No need to fuss over elaborate arrangements though either, throw them together in a group of glass vases or wrapped in brown paper and it will certainly enhance its 'just picked' wildflower appeal. Truly Romantic...

Almost as romantic as this?...go on you know you want to... 

Happy Valentine's Day to all the romantics out there.
