Bride's bouquet and Flowers in the House

Our first wedding in June and in my haste, I was able to get a not great photo of the Bride's bouquet, but hoping it translates somewhat.

This is the best time of year for what grows in the garden.  Still waiting for the Annabelle hydrangea to ripen and most of the roses haven't popped yet.  But here's what I picked for Monday Flowers in the House.

A nice close up of Urban Cottage's Favorite Garden Flower!

See it up there between the Baptisia?

So, we have Baptisia, the peonies that were flattened by the Big Storm, lemon balm, unopened Spirea,
and the only rose in the garden whose name I don't know.  It's a Rugosa and smells heavenly.  There's Akibia vine and last, but not least, Spiderwort which has pretty much taken over.  It DOES go with the blue, pink and white of the color theme out there.

In May I tried to photograph my PINK Wisteria that had hundreds of flowers this year, but it still came out lavender. I bought it as a baby from Heronswood Nursery about 6 years ago and it's now going crazy over the garage.

So now all I have to do is follow Jane's instructions for getting this into the loop for tomorrow.

O. and did I say that these last four days have been perfect New England Storybook weather.  Upper Sixties, low Seventies, dry, warm sun and today is cloudless.  Making a delivery then goin' back home.

All is too pretty. Baptisia has come and gone here and I still miss it.

Perfect arrangement, flowers, vase and subject matter.

Now if you an just link it up......

Never thought of cutting Baptista - maybe that's why I don't have a cutting garden.... I just don't cut enough of what I have!

A lovely arrangement.

I can see that to make a lovely arrangement like yours and the others joining Jane, that anything really goes, it is just knowing how to put it together. Have a great day.

Jane! I did link..after one mess-up! Thanks for the web training.
Webb- I grew it for cutting for the shop, but I can only bear cutting a few 'cause it's so pretty in the garden.
Linda- hope you're well on the mend!!!
Thank you, Katie.. I'm nearly hopeless at photos of bride's bouquets but I'll keep working on it.
Sherri B- even one daisy in a water glass has oodles of charm!
Fisherman's Cottage- my lemon balm is a bumper crop this year and smells sooo good!
