Some new wire flowers

I made some giant narcissi today!

As it is a holiday in this country ( Queens'birthday) I have a day off, so I decided to make something mini. I decided to go for faux enamel (wire) flowers and started off with narcissi.
The original instructions told me to use a toothpick for a former of the petals, but although we do have dwarf-narcissi here, our narcissi generally tend to be a lot bigger than that.
Still,I used a former that appeared too big , really, I think the flowers must be in a 1 / 10th scale now. The form was OK, though, so I have started afresh ( after having planted these)
