The Charm of Flowers




           Happy weekend!

                            We are enjoying lots of sunshine here and when
                            we change our clocks ahead tonight our evenings
                              will be  that much longer......Spring is on the way!



I am sending you a few bouquets
for you to enjoy.

                                                          This time of the year bouquets
                                                          of tulips always brighten my day.
I am looking forward to being
able to go out and pick daffodils
from the garden again some time
in May here on the Island.

                                                            A bouquet of stocks in a pretty
                                                            chocolate pot.

  Lilacs from the garden.


Lilacs and peonies are two of my
favorite flowers.

                                                             A little bouquet from the summer garden
                                                             hangs on the doorknob in the boathouse.

Love these little boots filled with
phlox and hydrangeas on an old door
in the garden.



Of course, I love roses in all colors
picked fresh from the garden.



A few late summer bouquets in the terrace ~
the cheerful tablecloth is an April Cornell.


                           Hydrangeas and vintage china make a pretty
 vignette.

                   If, you are suffering from winter doldrums I  hope
       these bouquets will bring you some cheer.

Enjoy your weekend!

Carolyn

What gorgeous bouquets Carolyn! I love how you make such beautiful vignettes with many different things holding flowers - like the rubber boots. The time change will be nice - more sun and more melting snow. Enjoy the weekend.

Beautiful and colourful bouquets share. I'd have to say I like lilacs and peonies the best too for their fragrance and cottage charm.
You did read about GardenImport closing the end of December?

HI Carolyn! Oh, I accept these beautiful bouquets with open arms. How lovely and I know how lovely your gardens are! We're still under the snow and the lady we bought our house from said there were flowers for all seasons so I hope there will be some little daffs!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Thank you for the inspirational pictures. I am sitting here dreaming of spring and I look out my window with the snow piles....this took me away for awhile from it. The weatherman promised 50's for our area next week. That will be lovely and so is your blog!

Hi Carolyn,
Here you can still feel quite happy! "
What a beautiful bouquets and also what they are in pretty vases and jugs!
It was with us today in Holland too sunny. I spent seven hours on my balcony for the first time this year. It was so delicious, the heat and the sun.
I wish you a nice week!

Kind regards,
gerry
