I’ve always wanted a cutting garden, but have yet to actually start one. I’m too busy growing tomatoes and other edible plants. Perhaps when I get all my raised beds installed and all the fruit trees I want, I’ll finally get around to the cutting garden. Until then, I just cut a few blooms here and there from the plants in my flowerbeds. Usually you don’t notice too much if you don’t cut too many. This past Wednesday I cut my final bouquet from the garden. I was actually surprised by how much was still blooming.
After I picked all the flowers I had to decide which vase I wanted to use, round or square?
I finally decided and threw the flowers in and then onto the coffee table it went. I should put it on the dining room table where we’ll see it more often, but that’s covered with bowls of tomatoes.
So what’s in this bouquet? Some pink spray roses, a lace cap hydrangea bloom, and a few limelight hydrangea blooms.
There are also a few zinnias, I also threw in some hosta leave for some texture and some fern leaves for some added green.
There’re also a few russian sage blooms. The cats love it, they’ve been up sniffing it all afternoon, looking for bug stowaways I’m sure (they love it when bugs get in the house, tasty snacks). Do you still have anything blooming in your gardens?
