What with birthdays and floor stripping these last few weeks, I haven't been able to get to the Saturday morning farmers' market for at least a month. One of the things I miss most is freshly cut flowers.
I'm so used to market prices that I almost fall over in florists when told the prices of the bunches before me. But as our floors looked so pretty I dearly wanted some while I was out and about this morning so I popped into Jodie McGregor in Annandale.
These cuttings taken from a pepper tree seemed just the thing for autumn and I loved them instantly. At $21, and assured they'd last two weeks if I didn't mind a bit of leaf drop, I even remained standing when I handed over the cash.
