Tiny Bouquets

June 27th, 2017

Lately I’ve been making tiny bouquets. They’re sprinkled throughout the house where I see frequently: the kitchen windowsill, the bathroom windowsill, my desk, the front entry.

It’s a great way to use up flowers with shorter stems and much easier to deal with wilted flowers than trying to pick them out of a larger arrangements. At the moment, these tiny bouquets are making me happy.

What flowers are blooming in your garden this week? Which ones are you bringing indoors?

    Susy, your house must not only look good but smell wonderful. You always have such wonderful ideas about how to create beauty inside and outside of your house. As for me, I’m drawn to construction and development of garden hardscape and functionality of living spaces. I have indicated over the years that I want more creativity and beauty in my life but it still seems to result in strong structures and not delicate flowers. I’m not giving up yet. I have a flower bed at Terra Nova Gardens by the gate so maybe there’s still hope for beauty soon.

    Have a great Tiny Bouquet day.

This is a daily journal of my efforts to cultivate a more simple life, through local eating, gardening and so many other things. We used to live in a small suburban neighborhood Ohio but moved to 153 acres in Liberty, Maine in 2012.
