You might have noticed that flowers are one of my favorite decorating accessories, especially casual displays using fresh cut garden flowers. Oh yes, I love a room with a fresh garden bouquet.
These pink peonies above are from my very first blog post, before I really new what I was doing. Sometimes I’m not so sure if I know now!
I gave away most of my peonies this year. Here are the first three blooms of this season, the ones I kept. If I had to choose my favorite flower, I’d have to say the peony. Hydrangeas, however, come in a close second. The billowy puffs of soft color are so lovely, like colorful clouds.
These hydrangeas above are from last summer. Wow, the hydrangeas really were ginormous last summer!
The garden bouquet in our study I made with the very first hydrangea bloom of this season. I beefed it up with a variety of flowers, adding both color and texture. I made the blue and green hydrangea centerpiece below a few weeks later when the plants were blooming more.
I love fresh flowers. Happy picking!
