My Garden Bouquets

Hello everyone,

We are still enjoying warmer then normal temperatures here on the Island and seem to be escaping the storms, that our neighbouring provinces are getting . We have a few of inches of snow on the ground but that's it- I hope it is not waiting until spring to arrive!

Anyway, I was trying to come up with something pretty to share with you today, and this is what I came up with. They are photos taken over the seasons in our garden.

Lovely lilacs!

Handsome Hydrangeas

Pretty Peonies!

Peonies and Campanula

Spring Bouquet-Hyacinths and Daffodils. Sorry,I should have had the photos in better order.

A pretty mixed bouquet again-Peonies,Delpheniums,Mallow and Feverfew

Hydrangeas and black and white toile

a fall bouquet

Lilacs and Peonies

colorful fall bouquet- Daylilies,Golden Rod,Coreopsis, and Brown Eyed Susans.

I enjoyed a look back at some of my garden Bouquets and I hope you did too!

Since today is Friday I am joining in with Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday.

There is always lots of beauty to be seen at Cindy's!

Help yourself to a nice Bouquet
I hope you all have a great weekend!

Hi Carolyn,

Your garden bouquets are very pretty! I like all the flowers!! The pitchers are beautiful too! You asked me when the last frost is in our country. It usually is at the end of april/beginning of May, but the last couple of years it looks as if spring is coming earlier. We have had temperatures in april up to 25 degrees celcius! I hope this year will be one of those years. I am in need of some sunshine :-) It has been very grey around here! Enjoy your weekend!

Lieve groet, Madelief

Gorgeous bouquets -- I think my favorites are the first and last ones. Peonies like that are so beautiful they look more delicious than any dessert... and I love the combinations of roses, peonies and delphs. Pink and blue-violet is a wonderful color pairing.

I love cutting and arranging flowers too. Yours are lovely. This is just what I needed on this gray & dreary day.

Carolyn said...

Oh my how lovely! Sadly, we are unable to grow lilacs like yours here in the south and the peonies are breathtaking. Thank you for sharing your beautiful garden and pictures.

Marie said...

Thanks so much for the lovely display of bouquets Carolyn! I enjoyed them all and made me smile.

What beautiful flowers! Thanks for sharing them with us.

Katie@LeBeauPaonVictorien said...

Utterly gorgeous! And I love the vases/pitchers you have to display them in!
I am awaiting the day when I have more flowers so I can do more cuttings, because I just love fresh flower bouquets in the home. Most of my perennials are new yet, however.

Carolyn, your floral arrangements are exquisite. You are soooooo talented. You should publish a book on flowers. It would be an immediate bestseller. Thank you so much for adding so much beauty to our world! Sincerely, Susan from
