It’s a very simple thing, but one of the reasons why I love to garden so much is I can always have a little bouquet of flowers in a milk bottle on my kitchen windowsill. Today it’s Lisianthus and eucalyptus.
I have always loved little bouquets of flowers here and there throughout wherever I lived. And I have always gardened, so it’s generally speaking my own flowers.
There are so many wannabe Martha Stewarts still out there who want to have their own social media outlets devoted to flower arranging and their crafting, which is lovely, but it truly doesn’t have to be that fussy or that complicated.
Yes I prefer a vintage vase over a new vase, that’s just a personal preference on my part as I’ve always had them. But literally one of my favorite things is to stick some flowers in an old milk bottle. And when you put it on the kitchen windowsill, to me it is just one of those great feelings of home.
And because I have worked to have a garden with four season interest, I can have a little something on my kitchen windowsill almost all year round. In the dead of winter it might just be a little sprig of holly, but it’s still just so nice.
Also, I actually don’t cut a lot of giant bouquets from my garden. I like smaller bouquets and for the most part I like looking at my flowers in my garden.
But sometimes I just want some flowers inside.
Remember, bringing the flowers from your garden inside is to make you happy. Simple arrangements work best and you don’t need the fanciest of containers to enjoy the cut flowers. You are not arranging them to win a contest, it’s kind of a form of self care.
