Every old rose around our property is in full, rolling bloom right now and I decided to base this weeks bouquet around their long, arching stems. We’ve got peonies for just a few more weeks so I’m trying to weave them into every single creation possible too.
Savoring the moment because before you know it, zinnias and dahlias will be making their debut.
There’s something so calming about taking a little snippet of time out of the busy hustle to make something for no good reason. I’m horrible at meditating and even worse at “being in the moment” and this little project is a way I can try and practice both. So far, I think it’s working.
Now it’s your turn. What blooming in your neck of the woods this week?
It can be a single rose blossom, a handful of weeds from an abandoned lot or a big ole fancy bouquet. It doesn’t matter. Just as long as you take a few minute to explore and create.
To join in the fun, simply make up a bouquet using local flowers, snap a photo, post it somewhere on the internet and then leave a link to it here in the comments section below. Easy as can be.
