I used to dream of growing tall, sturdy flowers that I could arrange in elegant bouquets.
I’m over it.
Gathering tiny blooms, bits of green here and there, and then arranging them in a small vessel is infinitely more fun. Last night, as I gathered seeds from the Cosmos, I snipped a few blooms for a bouquet. I added lavender, asparagus fern, tall grass and a few bluebells and arranged them in my favorite cup.
My college friend, Carrielin, gave me this cup thirty years ago. It’s always been a favorite. She knew how much I loved cats, flowers, and tea, and managed to combine all three in this charming mug. What better way to display my little bouquet.
Do you have a favorite little treasure filled with joyful memories?
