Do you take the time to bring your flowers from your garden indoors to enjoy? The above arrangement was made with hosta leaves, sweet peas, lilies, Queen Anne’s Lace, blue anise and an orange gerbera daisy. joenesgarden.com
You can make simple and sweet arrangements:
When time is limited, one of the easiest summer table arrangements can be created by five hosta leaves and three large hydrangea blossoms as in the photo here. Use a short vase. Cut the hosta stems so the base of the leaves sit on the rim of the vase. Place the hostas in the vase so they edge the entire rim – the stems will criss-cross in the vase. Cut the hydrangea stems so the lower portion of the blossoms will rest on the hosta leaves. Ten minutes, tops, gives you a simple, beautiful, and dramatic display.*
Another good tip is that you can also create simple, beautiful flower arrangements with fresh cut flowers from a local farm stand or flower store. Simply use greens cut from your own bushes and perennials as your supporting cast.
