Never enough flowers.....

As most of you know, my husband and I date every Tuesday night..it is our time together when we shut out the rest of the world...and be US!!   One part of that date night that I haven't ever shared here is the flower arrangement that I always put on the coffee table...especially for our date..we almost always watch a movie in that room.......there have been many, many different combinations on my coffee table...and usually a candle or two...


Flower arranging is one of my passions..I have been doing it as long as I can remember...My Grandmother and Mama were very good at it...winning ribbons at flower shows...I was entering arrangements from the time I was old enough to do it...In our little town, they cleared out the Ford Motor Company show room and held the flower shows there.....nothing like small town living....in the 50's and 60's....Grandmother was a flower judge and I always thought that was such a big deal...flowers, flowers, flowers....it is my life.......and heritage......


This week I really liked the flowers that I put together and I thought I would share them with you...and encourage you to pick some of those flowers from your yard and bring them inside..it will brighten up your home and make it look loved....

I got the idea from a friends post on facebook...thank you, Carole....when she said use hydrangeas to hold other flowers in place..and that is what I did....so pretty...



The dahlias I bought from Brent and Becky's are proving to be well worth the money and time....just gorgeous and the blooms are not slowing down  at all....


The Becky shasta daisy are Bryan's favorite...so pretty this year....



 I think the hydrangea is Nikko.....maybe....

.
This is just an example of how beautiful something can be when there are many different parts brought together into a whole....not the same, but each distinctive in it's own beauty.....they are all flowers but each one is different......Do not give up your individuality.... your distinctiveness...... the way you are.......

Be YOURSELF....

it is the only way things will all come together and work to make a whole ....if we play the part that we are called to be.....harmonious.....that's another thing I love about nature.....it is just so harmonious....not a lot of competing with each other unless it is an invasive plant species.and that is not something I will tolerate AT ALL in my garden.......but that is another story all together....

Thank you for stopping to smell the flowers here...

I hope to see you again soon...

  2. Mona, the arrangement is lovely! The only thing I remember about a flower show in our home town is the time my friend, Anna S., and I made one and used dry ice in it - cutting edge stuff - hahaha!
