I've been enjoying a few cut blooms from my snowball bush for the last few days. This is its first year after planting, and while the bush grew larger, it produced fewer flowers this spring. I wish I had planted more than one! What was I thinking? They only last a short time anyway.
They were so cheery that I got used to having a small bouquet close by. And when the flowers finally gave up I wanted another one to take its place.
Or maybe I was just influenced by the new Victoria Classics Magazine which has lots of gorgeous white in it.
At any rate, my choice for Mother's Day was another white bouquet. Stocks this time. Lovely and fragrant.
The scent fills the small sitting room and adds a special touch. I may have just started a new routine for cut flowers!
A little live bouquet just adds an extra something to a room. And I know the "sort of" rule that insists you need a pop of color in a white room which is often found in the flowers. But my rooms will soon be filled with plenty of liveliness with all the family home. I'd rather keep the tone quiet.
Thanks so much for all your warm wishes for the big reunion! It's a busy time of year and many of you have big events this month too. My best to you too! I hope you all enjoy a sweet Mother's Day!
