Just picked

One of the reasons I plant flowers is so that I can have bouquets like this one: nothing fancy -- just colorful, informal bundles of blooms tucked in a simple vase or jar.

I think we're just about at the end of bouquet season. The zinnias are in rapid decline, and the daisies are giving me a rare end-of-summer repeat bloom.

It's nice to bring a bit of the garden inside...while it lasts.

Rachael -- thanks! That's the best thing about growing flowers, I think. :-)
