This - finally - is what all that planning and planting is all about! Enough flowers to just cut what I want and bring it inside.
After many years of leaving them all in the garden, I have finally started cutting my calla lilies. Why have I let them stay outside, instead of enjoying them right where I can see them. These are now on the coffee table - front and center!
And, no, this is not last week's bunch of posies! Altho it looks very similar. Mitchell liked the low rectangular vase so much that I used it again this week. This time I added zinnias to the callas and monarda, instead of hydrangeas and salvia. Next week, I think it will be zinnias and salvia. I miss the touch of blue. These babies are on the dining room table.
Another flower i seldom cut for the house is garden phlox. These are the first blooms with some scabiosa, and a bit of salvia. Why don't i cut these more often?
And last, a single lacecap hydrangea next to my chair. This is 'Taube' - so simple and so pretty!
