There is something that really thrills me about going out to my garden and cutting flowers for my house. It is even more pleasurable to be able to give gifts of cut flowers to friends. So many bloomers this month, it is hard to decide which ones are the most beautiful! Here are some great cut flowers:
As I mentioned in the Foodscaping blog (Eat my Garden!), adding herbs and veggies is really easy in any garden. This Basil makes a beautiful mounded annual that reseeds every year.
Not everyone is as enamoured as I am by the flavor of Anise, but, if you are, this is a perennial to try. It blooms and comes back every year.
Squash blossoms just beg to be photographed especially knowing what comes next – Sauteed Squash, Grilled Squash, and so many more options!
