I absolutely love flowers, but wouldn’t consider flower arranging to be my strong point. In fact, that’s the main reason I post so many arrangements. In order to truly get better at something, I believe that you have to keep practicing. Today, we’ll be arranging what I like to call a “Kitchen Sink” vase. This means that I’ve gone around the garden and cut “everything but the kitchen sink”. Let’s get started –
Here’s all of the hardy annual flower goodies that I was able to pick.
This growing season, I’ve gained a new appreciation for calendula and their role in the cut flower patch. Having overwintered these flowers in the hoop house, the Zeolights calendula are blooming like CRAZY. I just love the unique combination of colors within this variety.
I also picked these clean, white sweet peas. As soon as I saw them, I knew that I needed to use them before they were damaged by rain, bugs, or whatever else that could potentially happen in my garden.
I think that the addition of oat grass really helps for frame this arrangement, and to give it a much needed airy feeling. If you look really closely, you might be able to spot some white Madame Butterfly snapdragons, as well. Even though these colors might now “go together”, I loved having this vase sitting on my kitchen table. What do you think?
