I like them to look as if they are growing in, or have just been cut from, my garden, which means they are not florist-perfect! The pot may be cracked or mossy and even have a weed growing alongside it... Some flowers may be overblown, or not yet open... A leaf or two may be blemished... And if I find a way to make a convincing miniscule snail, there will undoubtedly sometime be one of those too!
