Pretty Cuttings . . .

 

 
 
 
 
The other day I couldn't resist cutting a few of the "pretties"
from the outside to bring into the inside.
 
We have so many Annabelle Hydrangeas this year
so a cut a bunch of them for that large metal pitcher.
I also added another bunch for the tall Roseville vase. 
 
 I have Zinnias, Cosmos, Dahlias, Bee Balm,
Crocosmia, Day Lilies, Iris  . . . plus many others in bloom.  
 
Mixing in a few leaves from various plants/bushes
makes a perfect addition to an arrangement. 
 
And don't hesitate to use different containers for your flowers. 
Canning jars, pitchers, cups, glasses, vases in
all sizes and shapes work perfectly.
 
And if you don't have gardening flowers at home to cut,
 make a trip to your local Farmer's Market.
No doubt there will be someone selling
small bunches of flowers just for you!
~
 Live your truth.
Express your love.
Share your enthusiasm. 
Take action toward your dreams.
Walk your talk.
Dance and sing to your music.
Embrace your blessings.
Make today worth remembering.

Gorgeous flowers!! I am envious of all of your beautiful hydrangeas too.
My one and only little hydrangea plant is doing well, and I am hopeful for blossoms this year.
I love your little flower arrangements and the addition of the greenery is just perfect!

Every year, I say that I want to add Zinnias to our list of cutting flowers and then we promptly forget to add them. I just love fresh flowers.
