The bouquet I picked up from the farmers market this past Saturday included lilacs, allium, and stock. Any one of these flowers make a stunning arrangement on their own. In a group, they are spectacular.
In the smell department it's hard to top lilacs, but stock gives it a run for it's money. How lucky are we that nature supplies an ever-changing line up of beautiful blossoms and the fragrance to go with?
I was especially glad to see the allium in this bouquet. It's a treat to get to enjoy it both inside and out. I never cut mine because I love to look at them when I am sitting on my porch.
Thanks all you local flower growers for letting me have my cake and eat it too.
