Spring Bouquet

by Cliff Sharples (chief cultivator)

Don't forget to bring the outdoors inside once in a while...

Sure to Please

Our garden is in full bloom in May, popping out amazing colors, shapes and textures everywhere you look. While they look amazing in the garden, it's always nice to enjoy the fruits of your labor and bring in some cuttings for an informal, spring flower bouquet.

Here's one from last week: peonies, some late tulips, wisteria and lilac. It smelled as good as it looks!




fresh flowers, cut flowers, bouquets


Sure to please is right! Gorgeous bouquet! If this doesn't inspire someone to garden, I don't know what does!
