This week’s bouquet is simple and ever so sweet smelling. Being rushed for time, and not much in bloom at the minute, I took the easy route and made a bouquet from all the Lily of the Valley plants in my yard. I have never used them for a bouquet before and never looked closely at their sweet faces.
Actually, I made three bouquets and set them on the ledge of the porch. It was a cool day, and since a few of them were yellowing, I thought they’d last longer outside.
Plus, I love using my pretty little vases, each with a different design and texture.
Sweetness is by far the best word to describe these delicate flowers, who spend their short lives, shyly hiding under their green leaves.
Taking this opportunity to wish all the Mother’s out there, a sweet and Happy Mother’s Day!
