The sun has graced us with its presence all week and the garden has literally exploded into bloom. Roses, peonies, flowering shrubs and row after row of field flowers. So much beauty, so little time! Hence the tardy post this week ; )


Tromping through the tall grass around the corners of our property hunting for inspiration, I found these big arching stems of peachy-blush spray roses. From there I knew I had to get the ‘Coral Charm’ peonies in on the action and then baby apples on the branch, apricot foxglove and more old roses joined the party.

This wild monster might be my favorite one yet!


I’d sure love to see what’s blooming in your garden this week.

If you haven’t jumped in on the flower action yet, now is the perfect time to do so. Even if you just pick a handful of weeds from the side of the road, the act of taking a moment to experience what’s blooming in your area, during this brief window of time is a truly magical experience.


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.

If you’re on Instagram, you can use/search the hashtag #seasonalfloweralliance for even more flowery goodness

    I love this arrangement. Do you give online tutorials on how to make such beautiful arrangements, I live in Great Britain and so the chances of mr popping over are pretty slim?
    I love your work.

    I love the soft relaxing hues of your arrangement. It was a like a breath of fresh air after a storm of a week.

    Here is my installment.
