Bringing The Outdoors In

Several vases full of Zinnias bring the outdoors into my dining room

The summer heat and those pesky mosquitoes prevent me from spending as much time as I'd like to in the garden this time of year.  Fortunately, I can bring the outdoors inside in the form of bouquets.  

Actually, I love to do this throughout all of the blooming seasons.  I have a lot of fun searching my favorite home d├ęcor and second hand shops for inexpensive and unusual vases and experimenting with different flower arrangements throughout my home.   Below are a few photos of some of my favorites.  I hope they bring a little bit of the beauty of nature into your home or office today.

Home is my rainbow and bouquets of Cherry Blossoms help make it so.

After a storm I salvaged these fallen Irises for this arrangement.

This arrangement of a variety of summer flowers brings even more color to the inside
of my garden shed.

One of my favorite vases containing some of my favorite flowers,
Ballerina Roses.

Another wonderful thrift store container perfect for small roses.

I think these Limelight Hydrangea and Tall Summer Phlox
blooms make a very striking combination.
