While garden flowers are waning by the end of July in the extreme summer heat, tabletop gardening provides a flower fix, no watering required!
I planted some Garden Bouquets for some
blooming tabletop fun and flower therapy . . .
Genus: Windsor Ware, Species: Johnson Brothers, Cultivar: ‘Garden Bouquet’
A ‘Fresh Flower Market, Seeds, Stems, and Blooms’ sign was freshly picked from a favorite antique mall and provided a little tabletop inspiration in the window ledge of the Potting Shed, propped on terra cotta pots.
My Floral Friday Dish Garden is blooming with an assortment of potted plants, ideal for indoor container gardening. . .
Fern, mini roses, ivy and kalanchoe and providing birds a place to nest.
Johnson Brothers ‘Sheraton’ is another blooming favorite in my garden of dishes.
Endless Summer Hydrangeas have faded to softer muted greens and are joining Charmelia from the grocery store for some Ball jar bouquets. . .
As well as in a creamer and watering can.
Johnson Brothers ‘Staffordshire Bouquet’ with its brown-tinted multicolored blooms is a perennial favorite and beloved pattern. . .
. . . providing a transition and a hint of fall to come, my favorite season!
And a garden glove is filled with a napkin and blooming with vintage flatware for a little tabletop gardening fun.
