Little Bouquets

I’ve been trying to bring the colors of the garden indoors. Here a mix of the little bouquets I’ve created.

Purple Roses and Carnations: Homegrown carnations are nothing like store bought. They smell spicy like cloves.

Calendula and Mums: I bought this plant for a dollar at the end of fall. I was just a puny little plant without any flowers. Now it’s a huge bush with these gorgeous orange flowers.

  • These are lovely. I’m also a fan of the small-scale bouquet, often because I don’t have enough flowers for a big one. Since I do mostly vegetable gardening, flowers are largely confined to borders, and I certainly don’t want to pick them all. Hence the small bouquets. This year is the first I’ve picked iris and columbine. The borders are growing.
