Bouquets and more Bouquets!

Hello everyone,
       Hope you are enjoying your weekend. I don't have anything new to share today but I thought you might enjoy a little review of some of last years bouquets.

Lilacs from our garden.

Beautiful white peonies in an antique pitcher.
I love  peonies and have many different varieties  of them.

One of the joys of the garden is being able to go out and pick beautiful bouquets to take indoors. It won't be long before I will be out there again picking flowers for a bouquet but in the mean time I am enjoying my grocery store tulips etc.

Thank you for visit!

Hello Carolyn
Thank you for sharing your beautiful bouquets. You remind me I need to cut more of the flowers from my garden to put in a vase too.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful flowers. What a day brightener in the cold winter months.
I especially love the lilacs and peonies.

Rowan said...

They are all beautiful but my favourite is the vase full of lilacs.
I rarely have lowers in the house because of my husband's asthma. My mum always had fresh flowers around the house and I really miss them even after all those years.

Carolyn, this year of flowers in review just takes my breath away!
I am your newest follower & I have added your site to the blogroll on my sidebar.
I intend to spend the next hour going back to see all your lovely postings. Exquisite work!!


I hope you don't mind that I pinned your collage & bottom garden gate photo to Pinterest. I made sure to tell people how to find your blog, as well, in the comment section. Your floral work & photograph are just amazing!
I'm so jealous of your garden, I could cry.

Thank you Carolyn. What a beautiful sight for my eyes, on a blustery -26 degree day (-36 with the windchill) here in Alberta as I look out my garden doors to a vast white scene & then pop back to look at your bouquets. Brightened my dreary day!


Linda said...

Good evening Carolyn,

It's -10 here today and it's the kind of chill that goes right through to your bones. Seeing your beautiful bouquets warms the heart. My favourites are the peonies. And the hydrangea. And the lilies. And the lilacs. And the tulips. And the roses....Haha

Carolin ogni volta che vedo il tuo blog delicatezza e la dolcezza che hanno le tue foto...veramente una femminilità che poche donne hanno.
La tua casa mi da un senso di giardino è un incanto...quando ho bisogno di pace mi sa che mi rifugerò a guardare tutto questo!!
Bravissima con affetto Marina
