I decided to squeeze the last of the life out of my outside flowers and bring them inside. A good time to do this is right now, the beginning of fall and before the first frost hits. The weather here has been crazy (over 90 Wednesday), and it’s starting to finally feel like fall (60s today). Since all of these flowers will be dead soon, I decided to cut some and make an arrangement.
I plant a lot of coleus and it lasts a long time in a vase. It will actually grow roots and you can plant it and keep it all winter in your home. I usually do this each year.
One of my favorite things to do in the Spring, besides admire all of the beautiful flowers outside our home, is to bring them inside to enjoy. Right at this moment I have a vase of amazing white peonies right on my desk so that I can stare at them all day. Here is a little snippet of what I have brought inside.
As you can see, this branch was yelling at me to give it a trim. So I brought it inside after shaking off as much pollen as I could.
It’s currently occupying this corner of our dining room. I’ll be posting a full reveal very soon of the dining room, but here are a couple of sneak peeks. How amazing are these lights? I have two of them!
And here are the peonies in the ‘wild’ at the bottom of our driveway.
And here they are in the dining room. The wallpaper is actually the first choice that I made for this room redo, about 3 years ago. I’m so happy this room is finally finished!
In my opinion, the best season is spring! Each year it seems to get better and better. After months of cold weather and barren trees, it’s so amazing to see everything sprout to life. Here is a little trip around our gardens.
