this week’s bouquet

This week’s bouquet comes with a table setting from Saturday when my Mother and sister came for lunch on the screened porch.

Since I set the table with my bee dishes, I kept the arrangement to all yellows and whites.

Having once been a beekeeper, I am partial to anything with bees on it, and these are my favorite summer plates.

I started this arrangement with leftover Queen Anne’s lace from last week’s bouquet.

And then picked my cutting garden clean of yellow zinnias and snap dragons.

I love the softness of this bouquet, the subtle yellows with tints of pink and soft orange.

With a break in the heat wave, we had perfect summer weather for a lunch on the porch and a lovely time together.

Sweet company and sweetness in a jar.

  1. I love my zinnias. This was the first summer I have ever grown them from seed and they have been a continual joy in the garden. Everytime I go out there, they make me smile. I’m so glad I gave them a try.
    Happy Monday Penny!
