Summer Bloom Inspiration

This time of year with gardens brimming with luscious blooms in striking colours and pallid pastels, I want to bring them in! We are in transition this summer, so I skipped out on gardening which means I must live vicariously through you and you and you!

Clip, snip and enjoy! I love little collections of different flowers. I once worked in a flower shop in Toronto owned by a brilliant floral designer named Helen. We would get shipments of flowers from Holland and while we cleaned them up and gave them a fresh cut after their long journey, Helen would make mini hand-tied bouquets called posies. The posies were adorable! She placed them in smallish clear glass bottles. These single bloom arrangements remind me of Helen’s pretty posies.

If your garden has lots of heavy-headed beauties like peonies, roses and dahlias experiment with making your own hand-tied bouquets. They make thoughtful gifts for friends and neighbours and will freshen up your bedroom or kitchen. Or, cut your faves and arrange them in clusters as you see here.

Don’t even get me started on this delicious bowl of ranunculus.
Perfect on any table in your home. Now who is going to cut me some ranunculus for my table? And don’t forget about the foliage. You can make elegant arrangements with greenery alone. Go ahead, try it!
