  • The cool spring has finally ushered in May flowers!  
    I love cut flowers from the garden. There is a simple, happy satisfaction that comes from picking a bundle of peonies for the kitchen work table.  
    Just be sure to shake the ants off first.  
    The other thing about a cool spring with adequate rain fall is that the weather is acting as a sorts of preservative: All those beautiful blooms are lasting much longer than normal.
    When planning a garden, I always consider a seasonal offering of cut flowers for indoor arrangements.
