An Arrangement

I know ya'll are sick to death of me taking pictures of flowers in my house and yard but I just love them so much!  It is my dream (among a million and one other dreams) to one day have a huge flower garden that I can have fresh cut flowers for all the seasons for my house.  In the end, I think it saves money when you don't have to buy them from the store.  Anyway, I put together this arrangement using things cut from my yard - snapdragons, hydrangeas mint, flowering cilantro and some bush clippings.  In addition to looking pretty, the cilantro and mint smell amazing! 

Does any one have any recommendations for good plants that flower often for cut flowers?  I bought my peony bush but so far I've only gotten two blooms out of it and I don't know if I'll get any more.  Sad.

  1. Pretty arrangement. I can't believe you have hydrangeas already-- mine are still green. My peonies are all tapped out also! But the ones in a vase on my table smell heavenly. I think probably roses are the way to go if you want something that blooms more than once. I can't stand to do all the maintenance for "real" roses, but the knockout ones (that some people hate, and admittedly, I have to prune the heck out of each fall to keep them in line) do bloom a lot.
