a walk through the garden

   Making a nice bouquet at home can be a tough thing to do, i don't know about you but i can be my toughest critic.  A trick that i would like to share in making an inexpensive but beautiful bouquet is to buy a few of your favorite stems at the store and improvise the rest with what grows naturally at your house.  I bought some coral pink peonies at my local trader joes and filled in the empty spaces with wildflowers and leaves growing in the back yard.  This bouquet reminds me of attending a tea party in a whimsical garden, it is messy but the uneven stems and different colors work so well together.  Also, if there is a trader joes near you, they are a great flower provider, they are very inexpensive and have such a great variety of flowers to choose from that are delivered fresh on a daily basis.
