As you know, I love garden bouquets. As promised, here are more of my favorite homegrown flower bouquets.
Above are this week’s work flowers…
The bleeding hearts lasted forever. I will always use these in bouquets from now on!
My sister’s bouquet plan is hot pink roses with rhinestones on sticks- it looks very cool.
I know that some purists (ahem, Martha) like to keep flowers in the same color family- I love a little contrast for variety. The dark leaves and dark roses looked great but just needed the statement of the gorgeous single peony. I love single peonies because they don’t flop in heavy rain and look so elegant.
This was a great bouquet. When the blues shriveled, I changed it up and kept all of the same greenery and made it into a pastel and green bouquet. Really pretty. And I saved a lot of green!
I also love mini-bouquets for the bedside or a bathroom:
But nothing beats a great big bowl of peonies! Happy summer!
