So tell the truth, especially if you’re reluctant to actually cut any blooms in your garden to enjoy inside: Did you love seeing your beautiful bouquet last week? Did it bring at least one smile to your face?
We’re still fully ensconced in daffodil land here these days so this week’s bouquet features more of them. I only picked yellow ones this week and the one featured front and center—the double bloom with the orange center—is a favorite. It’s either Cheerfulness or Tahiti (I can’t remember which), and it smells amazing. I combined it with Virginia bluebell blooms, which are the most intense blue for that totally classic combination of yellow and blue in a favorite vase.
How are you appreciating your garden in new ways this week?
New to The Garden Appreciation Society? You can read more about it here, but the general idea is that gardeners need to break the habit of only appreciating their hard work and their gardens in their “natural habitats” and bring a small part of their garden inside to appreciate in a new way. It doesn’t have to be a huge bouquet. It’s not about flower arranging and it’s not about photography.
So make a bouquet from your garden, bring it inside and appreciate it! And if you feel like it, link it up below. You can link to it on your blog, a photo site (like Flickr) or even Facebook (just check your settings for that photo so you make sure we can all see it).
Here’s a link to Week 1. If you haven’t already, check out the great links there.
