Bouquets

It was August and Mrs. T.  was off playing "bridge."  I decided it was time to deadhead some garden flowers,  when a rare inspiration hit me.  Surprise the lady of the house with some bouquets an
art form I had never tried before. Okay take a look and try to hold back the spontaneous laughing!

 
 
Actually after removing the tall Stargazer in the last picture she was quite pleased. I've been wondering if they have a "beginners division" in the county fair next year? Probably not....:)

  1. I think you would get a blue ribbon in the beginners division. Great wild flowers and flowers from the garden.

  2. A new hobby. I enjoy cut flowers in my house, especially in the winter.

  8. BEAUTIFUL! You can't go wrong with wildflowers--they just naturally form a bouquet. Reminds me to go out and make one too before they all die off.

  13. No laughing here. That's one of the perfect things about wildflowers. They are wild and don't care how mixed up you place them they will always look good. Nice going, Troutbirder.

  14. How sweet that you attempted to make some bouquets -- your wife probably was touched. I like the top bouquet especially with all the Black-eyed Susans. -- barabara

  19. I believe they do have a novice category. However, yours are still quite beautiful. And what a fine gesture. I would love to come home to such a sight.

  20. You did a great job. Florist arrangements are nice, but simple is charming. IMHO, some of the prettiest bouquets have been ones made up of "whatever is blooming now". And never underestimate the sentimental value of hand gathered fresh flowers.
