My First Garden Bouquet

Last night, I made my first bouquet ever from flowers in my own garden. None of my plants are really big yet so I can only pick small pieces. How pretty are the hydrangeas! I can’t wait for my lamb’s ear, sea holly, and peonies to grow in so I can cut big chunks.

Lesson learned don’t use catmint if you own a cat. I was admiring my flowers on my nightstand last night when my cat came out of nowhere pounced on my bed and launched himself onto my flowers. He immediately starting ripping my bouquet apart till he found two sprigs of catmint. Cat!

I had a great night sleep with the windows wide open and a cool breeze breeze wafting in. I love cool nights after a few days of extreme temperatures and air-conditioning. I’m not a hot weather girl. I prefer sleeping with a wool blanket or a down comforter all year round.

  4. Wow – don’t you feel so proud! What a sense of accomplishment to say you grew that. Now when you get invited to people’s homes you can bring a bouquet of your own flowers as a house gift. So Martha! Congrats!

  7. Congrats! It looks just lovely. My garden is succumbing to the southern heat and nasty little bugs. I’ll live vicariously through yours for a while…
