Summer blooms to pick



There are some lovely summer blooms out and about right now, ready for picking – purple geranium, roses, hydrangeas, astilbe, dahlias, gaillardia, Shasta daisies and lisianthus (or eustoma – these are very hard to grow from seed),  with eucalyptus and coleus for foliage fillers. 

What’s ready for picking in your garden?

Summer wildflower bouquet

Wow. I’m loving this bouquet, which looks like it’s comprised of blooms straight out of a home garden. A picking garden, at that. Such vibrant colours and so cheerful, don’t you think?

My sunflowers, catmint and dahlias are coming along nicely in my own picking garden. I might be able to replicate this bouquet soon.
