This past Sunday was Mother's Day. I discovered that one very good advantage to being a gardener is the continuous stock of ready to cut flowers for arrangements. It only took a few minutes to put together these two arrangements one for my wife and one for my mother. Each arrangement contains 'Caradonna' Salvia, Irises, Heuchera (Coral Bells), Catmint 'Walker's Low', Phlox, and Artemisia.
I've never been a big fan of cut flowers but these arrangements seem to have turned out pretty well. It just seemed to make sense that if the flowers looked good together in the garden they would look good together in a vase! What flowers do you have blooming that you like to use for arrangements?
