Had great fun making the hat. Would be a lovely idea for a bride , bit different from the norm .
The flowers I used are called Gloriosa Lilies .Common name ‘Fire Lily’ The colour is very intense and beautiful
They are native to southern Africa and Asia. Interestingly they are considered invasive and dangerous weeds in Australia ! Dangerous because they are poisonous and cause the death of animals and birds when eaten . Always say , a weed is a flower in the wrong place
Be assured my flowers come from Holland and no animals in danger!
