Flowers and Garden Spring Arrangement and Giveaway!
Is Mother Nature sending warm spring weather your way? Our below freezing temperatures are finally behind us and we’re enjoying temperatures in the 60s and 70s this week!
Our azaleas are blooming and we covered our Chinese Snowball Viburnum to protect her buds and blooms from frost this past weekend.
The “snowballs” resemble large hydrangea blooms, which start out green, changing over to cream and then white.
They’re ideal to enjoy as a cut flower.
You can nest with snowballs and bird houses, here.
I cut some viburnum and azalea blooms, along with white spring flowers from our laurel shrubs. I added them to some wet floral foam in a galvanized Flowers & Garden bucket for a celebration of spring!
With the threat of frost over, I’m galvanized to garden!
In celebration of gardening season and flowers, I have a wee giveaway with a few garden goodies to share with one winner :
A galvanized Flowers & Garden bucket, a pair of gardening gloves,
Bowl of Beauty Peony (2 roots),
Al’s Flower Pouch is designed to maximize space and grow hanging flowers with pre-cut slits ready for planting. Fill it with flowers like impatiens, begonias or petunias and hang it on a door, fence, gate, deck or mailbox post for some vertical blooms!
Wave petunias bloomed all summer in my flower pouch on the back door of my Potting Shed last year.
I hung it on a wreath hanger on the door and added a blooming transferware plate, easy to remove for watering. I used
on it every 10 days to encourage new blooms and keep it lush and full.
Once established in your flower bed, Nasturtiums will reseed.
I always like to stop and smell the peonies, since season their fragrant blooms are fleeting! Some of our peonies have buds and bloom around the beginning of May. I picked up a few new varieties of peonies to plant this spring, including Bowl of Beauty.
