We pick daisies, poppies and other wild flowers, roses from our garden and any flowers we can pilfer from the neighbours' front yards. A head of garlic or an artichoke bring good luck.
Daughter Danae cuts a supple olive branch or some grapevine and joins it in a circle. Then the flowers are woven around the stefani (wreath) and tied in place with string.
We usually tie a bunch of wild flowers to the front of the car or bike as well.
