Greetings and welcome, Friends. It’s time for Sunday flowers and a little outdoor vignette in the garden. In the picture above you can see that I’ve made a small flower arrangement in a metal watering can. I sometimes use this instead of a basket to gather flowers. You can fill the bottom of the can with water and the flowers are happy while you wander and pluck a blossom here and there. It turned out to be a pretty display without my doing much arranging.

The large terra cotta pot in the back holds mums which are getting larger now that the weather is warmer. It sits on a cement cover over a drain and is backed by a rock wall. Herbs grow all around flanked by stone pathways. You can see oregano in the front and lemon verbena in the back. It is so fragrant and a pleasant place to sit amongst the plants.

The can holds two varieties of hydrangea, the purple which is quite colorful and the blue with its soft sky colors. Two different varieties of yarrow are also in the container. I have a white yarrow and a yellow. I also have pink and orange but they bloom at slightly different times. A few daisies made it into the arrangement with some lemon balm. Daisies are happy flowers with their sunny faces.

The dappled sunshine picks out one flower or another to highlight. Here the daisy is the star of the moment.

Another angle brings out the purple hydrangea. I love the casual, relaxed look of a bouquet of garden flowers. Formal gardens definitely have their place in the landscape but the cottage garden makes me happy.

Wishing you all a lovely Sunday and a wonderful Memorial Day as we remember those who gave their lives for us.
