Yesterday evening I planted my cutting garden, well most of it. I still have a few things to seed. It’s filled with the usual suspects, you’ll be seeing them throughout the summer as they bloom. Meanwhile, I’m always on the lookout for uncommon cut flowers and other plants that I can use during the weeks with no blooms. This week I have lovely rhubarb flower bud stalks gracing my table.
They’re rather graphic, very large, very bold, and quite interesting. I absolutely love how they look and enjoy their beauty during this season. Since they need cut from the plant anyways, I may as well enjoy them on the table for a few weeks during this time when there’s not much else blooming outside.
Do you have any recommendations for uncommon flowers or foliage for the table?Filed under Around the Garden | Comments (2)
