Hello!

Since we are lucky enough to have so many of our Coreopsis, lavender and Spirea blooming (as I shared in a few posts), I often take cuttings and use them in various places around the house.  It’s a nice way to enjoy my flowers both inside and outside and having the fresh-cut flowers about adds some nice color and warmth to the house.

Here are some of the ways and places that I utilize my garden flowers, some typical and some not so much.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
