the cutting garden


“One of the most attractive things about the flowers is their beautiful reserve.”
– Henry David Thoreau

I don’t have a traditional “cutting garden” , I have cutting garden flowers worked into my beds.

This year I went with some old fashioned annuals like zinnias and lisianthus worked in with my daisies, cone flowers, rudbeckia and so on. I also mix my herbs into the flower beds. It is all that cottage garden feel I like so much.

Today I decided to cut myself a little mid summer bouquet. Lisianthus, zinnias, rudbeckia, and daisies. I put the flowers in a blue bottle sitting on my kitchen windowsill.

So simple, so pretty, just makes me smile!
