Green Jars and Wildflowers

 

 

 

I have been wanting to buy the green glass mason jars ever since I saw them. Finding some at my grocery store, I immediately knew exactly what I would use them for. They needed to be in my sunny kitchen, filled with wildflowers - perfect for the summer months.

 

 

The sun shines so brilliantly through the green glass, almost giving it a glow. I lined up four mason jars in a wicker basket - so simple and sweet, but really making a statement.

 

 

Filling the jars with wildflowers was easy. At the moment, we have a profusion of wild phlox blooming everywhere I look, in the woods. The colors are so amazing, ranging from deep purple, to lavender, to white. On my walk yesterday, I simply found a patch that was not close by anyone's house, so I wouldn't take away their enjoyment of the wild blooms and cut bunches and bunches, placing them in a bag I brought along. When I finished my walk, I filled all four jars with water and the pretty blooms.

The woods will soon have more and different wildflowers for me to use in these jars and I also plan to fill them with daisies from my garden. Simplicity, but oh so pretty :-)

Have a wonderful weekend!

  9. Phlox does spread like crazy and is so fragrant. It's along the roadsides here too...great idea, Vicki. I have some blue Ball jars to use which should do well, I think...:)JP

  18. I was just at a party where they used empty wine bottles as vases for the centerpieces. The green glass of the bottles really makes the colors of the flowers "pop". The jewel tone mason jars are even better!

  21. Simply gorgeous! I bought a case of the green jars but gave all but two away. I love that Phlox grows wild there. I have some planted in my garden, but it's not blooming yet. Looks lovely in the jars! I just finished a wool runner which I will be using soon with a blue jar and Daisies. Just waiting for them to bloom. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
