"Where flowers bloom so does hope." (--Lady Bird Johnson)
Another sketchbook project page.
We have a variety of flowers going strong in our yard right now, and if Joe hasn't, than I've been snipping things to bring inside. The rose of sharon bushes (trees?!) are all abloom right now, and they're really pretty.
Someone gave us tiny little cuttings of two varieties a few years ago, about a foot high and stumpy, and we sort of half-hazardly stuck them into the ground: one in the backyard, and one in the front. Now, just a few years later, they're taller than I am with flowers all over the place.
Both of us will pretty much cut any kind of flower that's out there, whether it's on a tree, a bush, or a tiny stem, and bring it inside for us to enjoy here. Sometimes they last just a day or so, and sometimes, flowers last for weeks. Love it!
