Flowers from the Garden

On Saturday mornings, it is my little ones 'chore' to deadhead the flowers in the garden and collect bouquets to bring inside the house.  Each week I see her improving on her arrangement skills, and she is starting to look forward to this part of the week.  I usually don't have to remind her as the previous weeks arrangements start to look time-worm, she'll remind me that she is going to slip out into the garden on Saturday morning to make new arrangements.  Currently blooming is a ton of Shasta Daisies and Carnations, but the roses are starting to open along with the occasional camelia, gardenia and hydrangea...

  Here are this weekend's flowers from the garden...

My father-in-laws old tool box filled with tin cans of Shasta Daisies and a flag to celebrate his memory and service to our country in WWII

Shasta Daisies and she added a bright red ribbon for Memorial Day

On the left are celery blossoms and on the right are hydrangeas

For the kids table at the Memorial Day BBQ she used Dusty Miller Seed Pods and Shasta Daisies.

What is blooming in your garden?
