this week’s bouquet

This week’s bouquet comes with a table setting from Saturday when my Mother and sister came for lunch on the screened porch.


Since I set the table with my bee dishes, I kept the arrangement to all yellows and whites.


Having once been a beekeeper, I am partial to anything with bees on it, and these are my favorite summer plates.


I started this arrangement with leftover Queen Anne’s lace from last week’s bouquet.


And then picked my cutting garden clean of yellow zinnias and snap dragons.


I love the softness of this bouquet, the subtle yellows with tints of pink and soft orange.



With a break in the heat wave, we had perfect summer weather for a lunch on the porch and a lovely time together.


Sweet company and sweetness in a jar.


Linking with Rambling in the Garden for “In a Vase on Monday”.

  1. I love my zinnias. This was the first summer I have ever grown them from seed and they have been a continual joy in the garden. Everytime I go out there, they make me smile. I’m so glad I gave them a try.
    Happy Monday Penny!

    1. Thank you Ali. I’ve never made a yellow arrangement before and I loved the softness of the subtle colors together. I want to see your arrangement when you make yours!
