Two dear old friends were in town, and came over for some homemade pizzas and lots of girl talk. When I opened the door, Jules was holding a vase of freshly cut flowers from her parents garden (this garden!) in one hand, and a fist full of heirloom tomatoes and onions straight from the ground in her other hand. Her homegrown tidings completely made my day.
I love that the roses are at all stages of life- some tight buds, some crisp and open, some soft and shedding their petals. This life cycle isn’t something I can usually capture in my wedding arrangements, as most brides aren’t too hip on “dying” roses! I think they are beautiful though 🙂
I have never, I mean NEVER, seen zinnias this large and vibrant at the flower mart. If I did, I would buy zinnias much more often! ‘Tis the season for them!
I love receiving flowers even though I’m around them constantly. I wonder if bakers still like receiving cupcakes, or if they’re totally sick of them?
