Yesterday when I was getting the hose from the side of the house to fill up the kiddie pool, I noticed that our side garden (aka overgrown death trap) was growing out of control. But there was something kind of pretty about it.
I love how fluffy the green bush is right now and thought it would look nice cut tall in a vase for the washroom. I added a few sprigs of the purple -- which I'm pretty sure is a weed (anyone know if this is the case?) -- to add a bit of colour. I love how it turned out. Something so simple, inexpensive and right from the yard.
I also took a few flowers from our light purple clematis and a few sprigs of the lavender (below the clematis) to make a tiny arrangement for the dining room.
And just for fun, I thought I'd show you our little garden. I'm growing zucchini and peppers and I planted one of the hydro cilantros from my veggie box. I thought it was a goner after all the rain we had this week but it seems to be ok so far. Yum!
What are you growing and snipping these days?
