A birdbath bouquet!

Today I went to hang my lightweight bird feeder in the "Mexican Sunflower" bush-tree, and I cut this one spray of sunflower and a few buds out. I laid it into my birdbath to keep the cut end moist since I thought I would put it in a vase inside. Well, then I discovered a large couple of sprays of the pink Drift Roses, and I cut and also placed in birdbath. After getting them in there I thought they were so pretty, I decided to leave them as an outdoor bouquet. I see this from my kitchen window, and it is just lovely!!!!! I will need to experiment with future flowers!

Hi Julie *hugs*
You're right it looks sooo prety outdoors. you'll just have to remember not to let them dry out and they'll stay so nice.

You are so lucky I especially tell you every winter to have such nice plants and flowers...spring is coming though and the groundhog confirmed it...hmmmm...but we've had lots of snow lately this week..

have a warm weekend.
