One thing that flower gardeners have is a lot of flowers. The question is: Do you bring them inside?

I have a cutting bed for myself, and my granddaughter has a cutting bed here, so we can have flowers in the house most of the summer. Baby's breath goes with everything!

But I like to leave my gardens alone, and very seldom cut from them, unless something breaks, then in it comes.

I agree The rosy cheeks, fair skin & dark hair..... What a combo!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

I've so often thought of having beds just for cutting. The idea first hit me 45 years ago when a friend of my mother had a cutting garden for roses...hidden away in a fenced area behind her garage. I thought it brilliant since I find the roses attractive as a garden only when they're in bloom. I've done this with my bearded iris...they're in 3 gal pots to be brought over when they're flowering and then taken back to the nursery when not. Same with narcissus...potted...then I don't mind cutting them.
I could be wrong...
and.....

Thank you all. She's a firecracker, though.
