She came bearing flowers!

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?

    Those zinnias are lovely, the colors all go so well together, and the roses are gorgeous too.

    I love getting flowers too! In fact I poke and nudge my hubbies into getting me flowers all the time. I don’t think he gets it though. Enjoy these beauties. (Makes me want to start planting a new garden)

    I love getting flowers too! I have had the most beautiful zinnias in my cutting garden this year. I have used them in many arrangements and still more to come. I’m hoping they will last into October woth good care.
