Let’s start with some flowers.
“Yuk. I HATE flowers.” You’ll never hear anyone say that. NEVER. Because everyone loves flowers.
It’s flower power.
This year my husband planted a small cutting garden. We haven’t had one in years, so I’m really happy that we have one this summer.
Zinnias, cosmos, and white snapdragons.
I have a thing for zinnias. Don’t know what it is about them, but I think they are just gorgeous. And the colors! Amazing shades of pink. And red and orange. It’s like perfect shades of lipstick!
And the cosmos are precious and beautiful shades of pink (more lipstick, anyone?) with a rare white one popping up now and then. They are strong despite being so delicate. I just love them too.
Oh, and the snapdragons! We planted only white ones. They took their time blooming but now it’s like having a bridal bouquet on the kitchen table! Beautiful.
A garden palette.
Next year we’ll expand our little garden with some other colorful varieties.
Wouldn’t it be lovely to have a few small cutting gardens, each with their own color flowers?
