Actually, it’s still a bit chilly here in Middle Tennessee, but the things that are supposed to be blooming are, in fact, up and at ’em—
—and I have put together the first “found bouquet” (sometimes I call it a scavenged bouquet) of the season.
I love fresh flowers, but the budget doesn’t allow for store-bought. So I make do with what I can find in the yard. Between the herbs and the perennials, there’s always some greenery and color to fill a vase every few days from April to October. Have a look at my first scavenger hunt.
First scavenged bouquet of 2015! Peppermint, marjoram, leaves from hosta and coral bells, Solomon’s seal, lilies-of-the-valley, foam flower, and iris. Presented in a beautiful Depression glass pitcher, one of my favorite pieces of glassware.
