I know I am a day late for Earth Day but we had out of town guests this weekend so I left the computer off for most of the weekend and filled my kitchen with a few new recipes to debut later this week!!
While looking in my garden on Thursday for some flowers to pick for a dining room table arrangement. I was feeling disappointed since the spring floral season came early all the daffodils and even azaleas were already gone. I did not even have enough herbs to cut which I sometimes do for a smaller arrangement in the kitchen.

I saw my neighbor outside in her garden, she is the true master gardener and told me to do something I did not think often to do this time of year…look up at the blooming trees. I do this all the time over Christmas Holidays.
In fact that is a territory of floral arrangements I never thought of this time of year. After scouring the yard I came up with this. Not a traditional bouquet for some but the colors went perfectly in my dining room.
On Monday as I write this, the hydrangea vine was the only thing wilting. That is one good think about the woody stems is they do typically last longer.
Here is another reason to look up sometimes. These fellows came for a visit this weekend as well.
What are some different things you have made arrangements from?
