You can see as the season has progressed, the flowers have switched to some very bright and bold colors. I absolutely love it! There is so much blooming now, it is hard for me to get everything picked. Summer Bounty if here!
I am starting a blog series throughout this growing year of buckets of flowers. Arrangements and mixed bouquets are great and I love to make them, but normally I find flowers the most beautiful right after I pick them and they are all together in their own bucket. They are easier to look at, and they have a much more powerful statement by themselves.
As you can see, the beginning of this year has not been bursting with color. Lots of whites, greens, and pale pinks. This makes me want to enjoy the flowers as a straight bunch even more.
