Flowers

I LOVE flowers! All flowers!  ( Although my husband will argue that is not true. After he bought me several bouquets of tropical flowers, I told him that while they were beautiful, they were not my favourite.)

But I LOVE flowers!

As soon as spring arrives and the garden starts to sprout, I am picking flowers to enjoy inside. Here is what is happening in my garden now and how it looks indoors.

Violas


If you gently pull on the stem, they will come out with a long stem



In the powder room







Periwinkle

On my kitchen counter with blue and white porcelain




Fragrant snowball viburnum

On the front hall entry table








Hostas lining the garden path

 In mint julep cups on the kitchen island





Pink Bleeding Heart

In the master  en suite

 So look around your garden and love the flowers inside and out!
