Fresh Flowers Are Always Favorites

HAPPY PINK SATURDAY

TO ALL MY PINKY FRIENDS

As you might imagine from the name of my blog, fresh cut flowers have always been a favorite in our home. So when I saw mention of a "new to me" meme last night while visiting my friend Cherry Chick, I knew what I would post for My Favorite Things this week. Liz @ Rose Vignettes celebrates Fresh-Cut Fridays on the first Friday of the month. With not much time on hand, I decided to share a few mosaics of fresh cut flowers from previous posts.



The flowers can be from one's garden like these zinnias from my summer garden.



Or they can be flowers purchased at the grocery store like these mini green hydrangeas and Yoko Ono mums.



The flowers can come from a garden of a freind like these white snapdragons from my friend Ann.



What ever the source, fresh cut flowers are sure to put a smile on your face, fill your heart with joy, and bring sunshine into your life.

Thanks to the following ladies for hosting these mems. Be sure to click the links below to join them for more beautiful Fresh-Cut Flowers, Pretty Pinks, and Favorite Things.

  1. Beautiful! I love fresh cut flowers. It is especially rewarding to be able tu cut from your own garden. So this fall and winter I will miss being able to do that as my garden goes to sleep.
    Hugs,

  2. I am partial to the sunflowers. My hubby is good about bringing home a handfull of flowers on occasion.

    Another friday's favorite for sure!

  3. Sarah, there is nothing, in my opinion, to lift the spirits like fresh flowers. I sometimes just have to indulge when at the grocery, if I don't have something blooming.

  4. Your mosaics are beautiful as are all of your flowers, Sarah. Zinnias are one of my favorites. My grandfather grew them around the border of his whole yard and he loved to give us little guided tours each time we visited. I have such great memories of this.

    I hope you have a lovely and fun filled weekend!

    XO,

    Such lovely vignettes!

  18. I love fresh flowers, too. Guess we all do.
    Oprah (NOT one of my favorite people) once said "there is no excuse to have faux flowers..you should have fresh flowers in your home every single day."
    Uh...hello...unless we grow them, it can get very expensive to have them EVERY day. :))
    I love your pretty mosaics..

  19. Dearest, dearest Sarah! What a refreshing post....as much as I love November, pumpkins and dried leaves, I still cannot get away from the loveliness of summer time. Your flowers here are so tender and beautiful, and what a great way to start the weekend....I can almost smell their perfume....thank you for coming by, it is always a pleasure to see you!

    Mille bisous, Anita

  29. I became a fresh flower fanatic when we lived near the Dutch market town of Heerlen. When we came back to Canada I indulged regularly - I'm so glad that fresh flowers are now so much more accessible than way back when.
    I had to smile when I saw the lilies in your post. Yesterday I hosted a luncheon and one of the guests brought a beautiful bouquet of Stargazer lilies and white berries - bliss!

  37. I agree Sarah! Fresh cut flowers really do put a smile on your face, so I pick up a small bouquet once a week and have them on my dining room table, in an old milk glass vase. Instant sunshine!
    Happy Pink Saturday!

  38. I agree with you on fresh flowers. No matter how small, a vase of fresh flowers just brightens the soul. I think my favorites are your zinnias. They are beautiful.

  39. Lovely! Fresh cut flowers just lift the spirits, I think. Enjoyed all your mosaics, but I have a soft spot in my heart for zinnias ... remind me of my Granny.
