I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I wish that I could say that I enjoyed mine, but unfortunately, I came down with the stomach flu. I am just now able to sit for a while without getting dizzy.
Oh well, enough about me. I am so excited to see your garden bouquets for the month of June. I would think that everyone has at least a few different plants in flower this month.
My entry this month is my favorite one that I have posted to date. And, it was not created by me. Earlier this month, my daughter’s high school graduation party was held at Double S Farms, the home of my mother, my sister and her family. It was a beautiful June evening and just before the guests were to arrive, my mother, (Pastor Farmer), went outside, cut some blooms from her flowering shrubs and made the prettiest country bouquets.
Prettiest Country Bouquets
They looked so pretty, on the old wooden table. I had forgotten my camera, so my sister let me borrow hers.
The flowers in this arrangement are from two shrubs that are found growing in many gardens in the southwest….Green Cloud Sage (Leucophyllum frutescens ‘Green Cloud’) and Orange Jubilee (Tecoma x Orange Jubilee). I love how great the colors of purple and orange look together. **Colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel, contrast nicely when paired together.
Smaller bouquets also graced the table and were made up of Gold Lantana and Orange Jubilee.
We had a great time at the party and the weather in June is just perfect for evening gatherings outdoors.
I would love to see your June bouquets. The guidelines for MGB are very simple….
1. MGB is held the third week of each month and bouquets can be submitted during a 7 day period (or even later if you like).
2. Create your own bouquet as fancy or simple as you like.
3. I would appreciate it if you would provide a link back to my post inside of your MGB post, but it is not required 🙂
4. Add your link to Mr. Linky below and that’s it!
I cannot wait to see what bouquets you create from your summer gardens.
