My Emily just loves fresh flowers! When we are at the grocery store, she often asks for some flowers for her room! I've tried to make room in our grocery budget to allow this as I feel that if it is important to her - I should cultivate that! Shown here with some clearance roses from Wal-Mart!
Recently, she's been eying the zinnia's in our garden! I did make her wait until her previous set of flowers had run their course, but she had fun cutting our first bouquet of the season!
Just before we cut the flowers, I was pulling a few weeds and handed Emily my camera and told her to have fun taking pictures of anything she wanted to in the garden. She had a ball! Here are my favorite pictures she took:
We've never grown zinnia's before - but I'm hooked! I love how each flower is a surprise - I don't know what colors I'll be getting before they bloom, but they all look so beautiful!
I carried this beautiful bouquet inside and Emily arranged them in a canning jar - we added a bow and placed them on a small cake stand! What a lovely table arrangement!
