Cut Flowers From the Garden
My last blog post was I showed scenes of the cut flower garden right outside the studio. It's the place I go when I need a painting break and a place to gather inspiration from. As promised, this follow up post shows you some of ways we enjoyed the flowers along with a few ideas for simple bouquets to decorate your home.
I always thought yarrow grew only in white and yellow, but it comes in a variety of shades and is the perfect filler flower.
I was so excited when this fluffy sunflower variety finally bloomed! It looks just like the ones Van Gogh used to paint.
These happy flowers are black-eyed-susan or rudbeckia. They are easy to grow and in our garden reseed by themselves every year.
OMG! We had so many beautiful zinnias in all sorts of colors! It was such a treat counting all the different vibrant hues as they began to bloom earlier this summer.

I hope you enjoyed the flowers...so next time you are feeling blue or you want to make someone happy, pick up a bouquet of flowers to set on your table. See what a difference it makes in your day.
