I love having flowers in the house and once vowed for year to always have an arrangement at all times. In the interest of not breaking the bank and also enjoying something I grew myself, a cutting garden seemed like the perfect plan.
There is even a book The Cutting Garden all about the topic.
This spring, I finally had Aaron talked into it. He dug up a corner of the yard along our path and we planted some seeds and some small plants. I know what you are thinking. That does not look anything like the cutting gardens I have linked to.
Well, it's a start. I am hoping it fills in a bit more next year and I already have plans to add to it. Baby steps.
Of the few flowers I did get they were beauts.
Love the color!
There were so few flowers I felt really guilty cutting them off for an arrangement and leaving the corner bare. So I only cut one and boy I think it looks great. (Garden book in the background for inspiration!)
