Show off your Spring and Summer Flowers.

This is a great time of year to cut some fresh flowers and show them off in a unique container.

I love using old water cans!

Recycle your glass vases with your own flowers, or return them to the florist if your flowers came from them. They will appreciate it and it's one less thing in our land fills.

Free flowers from the road side or my garden are the best.

Impatients never seem to disappoint. My grandmother has always grown big beautiful Impatients. Her secret is to water them both morning and night. They also don't like a lot of sun.
I also like to use the following to arrange flowers in:
  • Mason jars
  • Old crocks
  • An old wash bucket
  • An old boot or shoe
  • Mini maple syrup jars
  • jelly jars
  • baby food jars

Get creative with your flowers.

Have Fun!
