It's been a long, cold winter. And, with that being said, I keep looking outside, picturing in my mind, green grass and flowers blooming. Once the snow melts, in a matter of weeks now, the bulbs I planted in the fall will begin to poke through the ground and the lovely sight of daffodils and tulips will mean spring has finally arrived. I am also dreaming about summer flowers and what I will be planting this gardening season. Over time, I have discovered that the thing that makes me most happy with my garden, is my ability to go out in an early morning, see what is blooming and cut flowers for a sweet bouquet. So, this year the flowers I plant will have that thought in mind and I will work on planting flowers suitable for cutting and with a beautiful array of color.
I can see all these lovely blooms mixed together in a mason jar or vase sitting on my kitchen table, all summer long. It's such a beautiful thought and the best part is, soon I can make it come true.
Have a wonderful weekend!
