Fresh Flowers In The Home

Another way I bring fresh flowers into my cottage is by growing them in my garden.  I've slowly built up my hydrangea varieties, and I have several kinds of peonies.  I have a few roses, but I'd love to get some David Austin roses!

I also grow Purple Cone Flower (Echinacea), Feverfew, Daylilies, Zinnias, Iris, Larkspur, Hollyhock. Bleeding Heart. I cut them and make small bouquets in the cottage.

There is nothing better for washing dishes than some sweet flowers on the back of the sink.  

Grocery stores often have very nice flowers available.

 I bought them at Aldi for $3.99 a bunch.  I used them for the shower that I helped with on Saturday.  I love fresh flowers in my cottage.

What about you?  Do you like fresh flowers?


  1. Yes. πŸŒ·πŸŒΈπŸŒΌπŸ’πŸŒΊπŸŒΉπŸŒ»πŸ’›

  2. I feel bereft if my home is without some flower or other, even if it is only a posy of leaves and herbs. I have little jugs of primroses and pansies at the moment. I do rather envy your peonies!

  3. I love it especially when I can pick my own.

  4. I do love having fresh flowers in my home. (And when I cannot have fresh, I will use faux.)

    You have some beautiful arrangements of fresh flowers in this post!

  5. I always have fresh flowers in the house. They just make me smile!!

  6. I love fresh flowers inside the house. I have just brought in some peonies from my garden. I love them! I have hydrangeas as well, but the only one that blooms well is the Oakleaf hydrangea. I can't get the nice pink ones to bloom. I wish I knew what I was doing wrong!

    1. Some hydrangea bloom on old wood, so if you cut it them back every year you won't get blooms.
