Nothing Says "Home" Better Than Fresh Flowers!


I always LOVE to have fresh flowers in my home. I don't know how to explain it, but it just makes me feel good every time I walk by them. This bouquet came from my garden, which makes it a bit more special. I love that I can walk outside and have an instant bouquet of flowers to bring into my home. Here are some of my favorites that are growing in my garden right now.












My garden and my home, filled with fresh flowers always brings me peace. I saw this quote about gardens and I thought I would share it. . .

"A garden is a grand teacher. It teaches patience and careful watchfulness; it teaches industry and thrift; and above all it teaches entire trust"      Gertrude Jekyll

I'm linking up today with Fishtail Cottage. Please, if you want to see some beautiful gardens, drop by and enjoy the eye candy!

Your flowers are so pretty! I adore my garden and love bringing in the flowers. Today we are having strong winds and thunder storms. Darn it! I am worried about my pink peonies that are about to bloom. Thanks for sharing your pretty flowers:)
