Back in May I told you that Dale built a 3rd raised bed for our yard so that I could have a cut flower garden. We had a super rainy spring and I was late getting my seedlings planted but I finally did and, while I didn’t have high hopes for them at first, they finally took root and started to thrive. And now they are blooming and I am cutting!
This is the first bouquet, I cut it last week.
It’s sweet and old fashioned and I love it. And the boot vase was something I bought in Maine with just this purpose in mind.
And this is the second bouquet, I cut it last night when I got home from work.
It’s a bit bigger and includes calendula, which wasn’t in bloom last week. The zinnias are my favorite, followed closely by the cosmos. I got this little vase in Maine, too.
The stems are short so these tiny vases are perfect and I’m truly enjoying have wee bouquets of flowers in the house.
Just like Kym says, flowers are magical.
