This past week I spotted the first light pink double peony blooming and had to bring it indoors. I picked a few other flowers including: euphorbia, crimson clover, dutch iris, chives, single peony, ladies mantle, and east friesland hybrid sage.
After ready a few books like Simply Imperfect: Revisiting the Wabi-Sabi Houseand The Kitchen Gardener’s HandbookI decided to try having freshly cut things from the garden in the house more often. It can be anything from some freshly harvested asparagus in a vase waiting to be eaten, a branch of forsythia being forced into early bloom, or a beautiful bouquet of flowers from the garden. Someday I will have a dedicated cutting garden filled with all sorts of things to bring indoors, but until then I’ll snip a little bloom here and there. They won’t even be missed in the garden and I’ll be able to enjoy them inside.
What’s your favorite cut flower to have in a vase on the table?Filed under Flowers | Comments (12)
