Subtle Stirrings

Today I noticed the first subtle stirrings of spring.  Though slight, the breeze had a different scent, the sun is a mite stronger, and the song birds sounded happier.  March is a month of change and patience in the garden.  We are restless to get our gardens back.  The graceful white mounds are slowly starting to shrink, dissolving into the earth to provide a deep drink for awaiting roots.  In celebration of pending spring, here are some bouquets - from a single rose to fragrant phlox to puffy hydrangea and sweet pea, or splashy nasturtium and calendula - all harvested from the garden last season…

Happy Family Day whenever and however you may celebrate it!  A summer bouquet in honour of the event - sunny blooms including: rudbeckia, coreopsis, tansy, and accented with variegated artemisia.  Now if only we looked out the window and saw that green!

Little Bouquets

My Mom has often scolded me for not cutting more bouquets from my garden. And she is right!  Studies report multiple benefits to having fresh flowers in your home: they boost your mood and energy, make you more compassionate, encourage enthusiasm and happiness, and refresh positive memories.  They also make your home more inviting, welcoming, and fragrant.  It does feel like you soak up some of their loveliness each time you walk by.  I love having a bouquet on my desk - what could be more inspiring than having enchanting blooms under your nose.  In honour of my Mom, I picked four mini bouquets and will thoroughly enjoy them all week!
