Beauty in the Ordinary

A simple (and frugal) bouquet from bolted garden plants

The warm weather lately has my thoughts turning towards my Spring garden.  This weekend, I started clearing out my garden squares in anticipation of Spring planting.  Most of my fall vegetable plants have gone to seed (bolted), with the exception of my Swiss chard and lettuce plants.  I gathered together the blossoming tops of my arugula, mizuna and red kale plants for a simple (and frugal!) bouquet.  Beauty in the ordinary.

  1. Yep, my cold weather crops have bolted also. We are having temps in the 80's!

  2. This inspires me to make more arrangements!
