The Extraordinary Kindness of God and Flowers

A few weeks ago, on a warm July afternoon, our family drove to the lake for a weekend away. I normally want to get to the lake quickly, but on this particular day, I enjoyed every moment of the hour-and-a-half-long trip. It was because of the flowers. July days on this particular route always make me smile because of the flowers. Every July, the same beautiful wildflowers pop up in Iowa ditches — tiger lilies, Queen Anne’s Lace, and blooms whose names I do not yet know. July’s ditch flowers remi...

4 Reasons Why Dried Flowers Are Sustainable and Trendy

It is totally hip to use natural and sustainable products at home. The dried flower trend fits in perfectly with this. Dried flowers are no longer drowsy and dusty but very cool in your interior! So buy a nice bunch of flowers and make something beautiful for your home. Why throw it away when you can recycle? Dried grasses, grains and flowers have that classic and romantic look that you can use to create endlessly beautiful designs. Think of lush stems tied together as a field bouquet o...

Tuileries Garden

I joined a friend the other day for a walk in the Tuileries Garden. It had just rained and the air was fresh and clean and all of the plants were glistening the in sun. We arrived just after 8 in the morning and there were very few people. It was such a pleasure to stroll around and smell the blooms and grass. The fountain with no people in the chairs which is unusual. I told you we were early. This statue looked pretty against the green of the trees with their white flowers. ...

The weeds of the morning —  milk and butterfly.

Photographed at 5:22 a.m. at my sunrise vantage point, where they were not showing color yesterday. I like the way going to the same point at the same time — sunrise — every day lets you see the exact day different flowers bloom. And I love the happenstance that caused to dairy names — butter and milk — to pop up on the same day. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

More Garden

More photos from a beautiful day inthe Tuleries Garden. A sculpture celebrating the author of Puss in Boots, Charles Perrault. I think this is the only cedar tree in the garden. The iris was just starting to bloom. The morning sun tipped the iris in silver. Great color but the tulips were finished.

How To Care For Sunflowers in a Vase

The sunflower is used in many bouquets in the summer months. To enjoy it for a long time, it is important that the stems are cut diagonally. Do not put the flowers too deep in the water and make sure that no leaves get into the water. If leaves get into the water, bacteria are given space and the sunflowers will not remain beautiful for as long. It is important that the water is changed regularly. A common problem is that they hang. If this is also the case for you, pour hot water into ...

Flowers

Ah, Spring in Paris. It’s so nice to look at the flowers. Wisteria of course. Closeup. It looks good even as it’s fading. Roses for sale at a market. Tulips too. Vegetables were seen.

They're all foxgloves, Digitalis - OK?

“The smartness and absurdity of plant names” is one of things I’m going to be discussing here on the re-launched Grahams Garden blog, as I did on its predecessor Transatlantic Gardener. We can start with an old favourite given heightened absurdity by the good people at the Royal Horticultural Society – Digiplexis. “Oh, no!” I hear you cry… Yes, I’m sorry. And we’re going to do Mangave as well… So. Here’s the story. Our British native foxglove, a familiar tough biennial, is Digitalis purpurea (ab...
