I cannot seem to keep out of the garden for Wednesday’s Flowers. I get such a thrill picking flowers from my own garden. So I had to do it again this week.
I headed outdoors, early this morning, in the rain, to see what I could find to bring indoors with me. I had nothing planned, I was just going to snip away and work from that. Good thing I had no plan as my garden is not as colourful as it was a few weeks ago. The spring flowers, such as the Peonies, are just finishing up their flowering and the early summer flowers are still in bud or just partially open.
I did a quick walk through, quick due to the rain and cold, and snipped what blooms I could find.
Here is the gathering laid out on my kitchen counter. I used white and fuchsia Peonies, Blue False Indigo flowers and foliage, Lady’s Mantle, Japanese Maple leaves and three yellow Coreopsis flowers.
I arranged them in a hand-tied bouquet and placed the arrangement in a short, clear glass vase.
I think it created a pretty little garden party, perfect for tea time!
What’s going on in your garden right now?? Is your favourite flower blooming?
