Enjoy Your Flowers

Fresh Flowers at Sensible Gardening and Living

We really need to take more time to sit back and enjoy the rewards of all our hard work. July is a very demanding month for our daylily farm and there just never seems to be enough time. This week I decided to just throw down the shovel and prepare a few bouquets of flowers to bring inside and I’m glad I did.

It really took a lot less time than I imagined it would. I know I could have been a lot more creative and next time I will be. I’ve decided that every week I should refresh the vases with new flower combinations and have continuous blooms inside until the snow flies again.

This is a rather neat little vase I borrowed from my sister. A few bright yellow rudbeckias, a single pink dayliy and a few sprigs of fever-few is all it took.

We grow a lot of lavender for our bees and so I just gathered up a few handfuls and placed them inside a tree bark basket. Simple, effective and scented. They will just air dry in the basket and look good for months.

  1. Great combinations! Part of the fun of receiving flowers is “repurposing” the bouquet as some parts die off and others don’t. I can sometimes eke it out for a couple of weeks this way!

  2. Hi Petunia. Did you know you have the same name as our Mother deer? I think she bought the vase from Lee Valley.

  3. I know how you feel. The rain we had in June made the plants explode with blooms. I have been making lop-sided bouquets this whole month and love the added color in the house. Seeing the flowers makes me smile.

    Where did your sister get that vase. It is so cute!
