It’s time on Flower a Day for a white alyssum posy again, a mini bouquet such as a child might bring you on a warm summer day. This time, though, I bring it to you on a Sunday in February. For us in the Northern Hemisphere this will, I hope, take some of the chill off the day and brighten any gloom that has settled either in the weather or in our hearts. If you are in the Southern Hemisphere then enjoy it for the happiness such flowers seem to personify. Little explosions of petals and mini flowers within flowers. I wish you all a happy Sunday, my friends.

  1. As light and lovely as this little cluster is, this little plant, although a member of the same family as cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower, is not an incredible edible. In fact, unlike it’s sweet cousin, it is poisonous to horses and should be avoided in meadows where horses graze. It is not native to North America or Europe but is an import from Eurasia. It is botanical expression of ‘all that glisters is not gold’. Thank you, Ellie (and Shakespeare), for today’s lesson and visual delight.

    1. Thank you again for sharing more interesting (and in this case potentially critical) information to enlighten us further on today’s floral bouquet, Janet. I usually learn something from your comments and today is no exception.
      Thanks again

    1. You are most welcome, linda. I know they are not much under the circumstances for everyone, but as you say flowers always make everyone feel better. I hope you have a lovely day yourself.
