Freshening Up with Flowers

Well, hello summer!


Thanks to a full-on SNOWSTORM in early May, these guys are a couple weeks later than usual… but they’re HERE!

I love love love when the peonies start to open up… I snip off every bloom possible and the house is just littered with sweet-smelling pretties.

This year, the knockout rose bush we planted when Miss CB was born is also going bananas. 

 If you have a flower like a rose that has a light scent, snip a few buds and put them in your powder room – the color will perk up the room instantly (and kind of feels like a swank hotel), and in the smaller space, the aroma will fill the room quickly and you’ll actually be able to enjoy the pretty scent (versus in a large open room where the scent will dissipate pretty quickly.)

I love the fresh flowers that bloom this time of year… aren’t they purty?  :)

  1. Peonies are some of my favorite flowers! It makes me so sad that they don't do well down here in Florida!
