Straw Flowers

I  love straw flowers.......a native of Australia.  Straw flowers were used by the Egyptians to decorate statues of their Gods.  Greeks used straw flowers mixed with honey to soothe burns.  In the Victorian era straw flowers meant always remembered and were used to make fireplace screens and as house plants to decorate living rooms.  The flower heads are made up of papery petal like parts and are found in such colours as red, yellow, orange, pink and white and purple.♥


  1. My mother loved straw flowers. They are no longer as popular as they once were, but I share your love of them. Have a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary
