Backyard Spring Bouquet

Hello! I hope everyones weeks are going good so far. Yesterday I spent some time in the yard picking flowers and decided to make a little tiny arrangement out of them. I have been loving experimenting with different flowers and figuring out what I think goes together and different color combinations. What you see in this little posy are really the only flowers blooming in the yard right now.
If you wanted to create this yourself, the recipe is..
3 stems anemone
3 stems ranunculus 
4 stems scabiosa
1 branch of a dogwood
1 stem snapdragon (its hiding in the back)
And I don't know the name if that little pink flower with the variegated leaf in the bottom right…

Have you created any arrangements or bouquets lately? If you have link them below, I would love to see!

  4. What a beautiful jar of spring! Your ranunculus are so pretty - I struggle to grow them but keep trying. I post a vase of flowers from my english garden every week at www.peoniesandposies.com. The posts are in the category In A Vase On Monday.
