Garden Tuesday–Bringing the Joy Inside

My Dining Room

I know what you’re thinking.  What does my dining room have to do with gardening? 

It’s that vase sitting on my table, filled with flowers from the Korean Spice Bush.  Yes, I know it is a very simple arrangement, and wouldn’t win any beauty prizes, especially with that wayward bunch sticking out on the left. 

But it’s mine, it came from my garden, and it brings me joy to snip them and bring them in.  I imagine myself in some long flowing dress, with white gloves on, and a big wicker basket, that I oh-so-carefully set my cuttings in.  In reality, I am in jeans, with some old green pruners, and a ball jar filled with some water that I stuff the stems in.  Whatever.

Please join me for Garden Tuesday and link up below.  I’ve been told that it works better if you use a picture from your web post.

    I picture you as being right out of Gone With the Wind, in one of those flowing dresses, flowers in hand. I think they’re quite lovely!

    I love those little blooms! I will have to look for that bush in my local area. I have proof of Spring, I’m just sayin…….

    It is always such a treat to bring the first of the flowers into the house. I cut some forsythia yesterday to display in the living room. It like saying a final goodbye to winter. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary

    I love flowers from the garden, regardless of the arrangement. I brought in an icicle bouquet, but it melted. *sob*
