Last summer I participated each month in Noelle's Monthly Garden Bouquet at Ramblings from a Desert Garden but fell off the wagon in late winter when we were four feet deep in snow. Now it's time to bring back the bouquets! As I was walking through the garden this past weekend I noticed some Lupine blooms had been knocked down in the wind so I ran to get a vase and my first bouquet of the season was born.
Lupines, obviously, were part of the bouquet but I also added a branch of Spirea 'Goldflame' which is in it's bright golden stage right now.
And for a little added purple I threw in some chive blossoms.
