Bouquet of the Day July 5, 2010

Lilies are in bloom! Asiatic lilies do well in our zone 3 climate. I love to make little bouquets. Today I noticed that some of the stems were leaning near the ground so I picked enough to fill a medium sized vase. With it is bupleura, which self seeds every year. I once read that this green flower is quite expensive in the Dutch markets.

me again.....you love flowers so, I wonder if you are familiar with our southern Magnolia blooms? My last 2 posts talk about their sweet fragrance and there is a photo of a bloom.

What a pretty bouquet! I love your sofa and cushions too. The sofa almost looks like a soft aqua, is it?

Blessings,
