it's been over a month since i did my last fresh flowers post! don't worry -- i haven't abandoned my love for pretty petals. i've just been focusing more on adding greenery back into our space via houseplants. ...after i accidentally killed our previous plants by giving them sugar water. oops.
i couldn't avoid the siren call of fresh flowers for too long -- this wildflowery bunch practically screamed my name from across the grocery store. of course i snatched it up!
once i got it home, i separated the bouquet into its different components. lest you think i became a flower expert overnight, know i had a little help identifying the blooms.
once i had the blooms separated, i gathered my vases...
...and started playing!
i emerged with these arrangements...
i love the various shades of pink against our deep bluish-green walls. it's a wonderful burst of happiness to wake up to.
i didn't want anything too "girly" for fish's side of the bed so i just dropped the most manly-looking blooms into a vase and called it a day. i like the simplicity of this two-flower arrangement contrasted with the wildness going on on my side of the bed.
i originally thought these yellow guys were sunflowers:
nope -- gerbera daisies.
this cheerful bunch is in our front room, by the spirograph gallery:
i spent a little too much time taking pictures of the process before dropping the stems in water -- the lily leaves started drooping. they're doing better now thankyouverymuch!
i gathered all the spray roses in one bouquet and placed it behind our kitchen sink with a rose plant i bought at home depot last week. i love them together! like a momma rose watching over her babies...
...and that wraps it up for this week's fresh flowers!
have you brought home any pretty petals lately??
i find it hard not to with spring sooooooo close.
