Little Things like Flowers

I don't know about you but flowers are my love language. I would take a bouquet of flowers over some piece of jewelry any day.   Having fresh flowers in the home always gives a sense of life and happiness. Whenever I look at them in the vase on the tables I can't help but smile. 

I don't get store bought flowers very often, while I love them there is something so much more rewarding when you know they came from your own garden. If you've been around here for a while you know my passion for being in the garden and growing both food and flowers. It's taken a while for my plants to get to the point where I feel like there are enough blooms that I can bring some inside. Lilacs are so beautiful and smell great. We have a couple of lilac trees/bushes on our property that needed some pruning, so we took advantage of the weather this weekend and saved many of the blooms while we were at it. 

This owl planter though!

Flowers on the kitchen windowsill and some fresh eggs from our girls!

Nothing beats flowers on the bedside table. 

I got out some of my favorite vases and started trimming and decorating with our bounty. I just love how the freshen up our home and bring that element of beauty you can't get anywhere else. 

Enough for the guest bathroom. 

And of course I have to share the beauty with Ellie in her room!

What are some of your favorite flowers to display?

  1. Ahh I love fresh flowers in the house too! They just make you happy to see them. Could always use more of that around. I have a total black thumb but I'd like to try my hand at a garden - I think it would be fun for Aria too.

  2. So beautiful! Love that you grew them as well :) I pick up flowers from Fresh and Easy or Trader Joes all the time! Most of the flowers are $5 or less, which is pretty hard to pass up. Flowers just brighten up a space and make a home feel so much prettier in my opinion!

  3. Gorgeous!! Nothing makes me happier than having a vase of flowers with the sun shining through the window!! :)

  4. Your flowers are beautiful... I love the purples. :) I also love the lilacs, but we can't have them in the house... or near the house... due to allergies. They are so beautiful though. We do bring other flowers into the house... the not-as-strong-smelling ones. :)

  5. So pretty and so nice to just have them to clip and enjoy. The girls have been keeping my vases stocked with daffodils lately. Ah I love spring!

  6. Flowers really do brighten up a room. I love getting flowers. The lilacs are super gorgeous.

  7. All of those are making me so jealous! I love flowers!! I need to start a garden or something because I am like you- I loveeeee flowers!

  8. I love lilacs! We had a huge lilac bush at our old house and I'm hoping to find a place for one (or more) here as we slowly landscape! I never brought them in before - what a great idea -- they look so pretty!

  9. I also love fresh flowers, it just brings life to a room. I'm a big fan of any and all colorful flowers:)
