We’ve planted our garden, not as a traditional flower cutting garden, but as one that will flower for at least three seasons. When we’re gathering cut flowers for an arrangement anything that’s blooming is fair game, even things from the herb garden!
We built the bouquet for this week’s family dinner out of a motley collection of this-and-that. Here are the ingredients:
2. purple blooms from sage
3. red coral cells
4. purple chive blossoms
5. green parsley
The contrasting colors and textures make this simple but happy bouquet a treat for the senses.
There’s no reason NOT to use herbs for bouquets, especially if you planted more than enough. Besides, they thrive after being cut a few times, producing even more for your next arrangement.
