December flowers

Flowers in December

I always think of flowers in spring or summer but it is interesting what florists here come up with in the ‘non-flower’ season including December. Yesterday I visited some people and got the following flowers as gifts.

I still think of giving someone a bunch of flowers prepared in a florist’s shop but I think I shall have to start looking more attentively at what is available in different seasons.

One is of a Christmas Star, and very popular at the moment in Berlin. The other is cotton growing on a branch. Now who would think of that? I like them both and they add a certain style to my previously flowerless flat!
