Emu Dreaming – Snapdragon Arrangement

With Emu Grass and Freesias

Do bird people sometimes leave you scratching your head? Tip toe-ing around with binoculars to observe our feathered friends isn’t everyone’s cup of tea… BUT. You have to admit that emus are pretty damn cool.

These flightless giants are central to the Dreaming stories of inland Australia, which weave the stories of how cunning trickery and bushfires stole the Emu’s ability to fly.

Also celebrated is the very awesome habit of the male emu, who takes responsibility for hatching the eggs in the nest and raising the chicks! Emu Dreaming sites in Central Australia are associated with male initiation rituals.

This week you’ll find feathery yet hardy emu grass in your box! It’s the perfect complement to your soft silvery foliage and elegant white blooms.
