Mallow Bouquet...

(click photos to enlarge)

A bouquet under the cherry tree..

sitting on the old worn cedar bench...

I used Mallow and Fever few
for my happy summery bouquet,
my rusty enamelware coffee pot
made the perfect vase...

The rough mossy cedar boards
made a great backdrop
for such happy pinks:-)

Of course there must be a bit of white frills!

A tussie mussie,
with a simple twine bow...

The tussie mussie made a new home
on my kitchen windowsill :-)

Today I am joining..

Hello Bella
The mallow bouquet is quite lovely in your rustic container and the lace adds a feminine touch to the setting.
Hope you can enjoy the flowers in the window for quite a few days.

Hi Bella! Your garden vignette is precious. My girls used to call mallow, marshmellow...they would pick it and put it in their bedrooms, because of the color.
I love your combination of rustic, rusty, and lace...perfect.

That's a pretty bouquet.

Another beautiful bouquet!! Isn't feverfew great? It is such a happy bright flower and fills in the gaps so beautifully.

Hi, Bella,
I adore your charming garden bouquet in your vintage container. I also love the tea cup your grandmother painted. I have a real weakness for handpainted china, and your sweet grandmother, Ruby, did a wonderful job. Have a beautiful rest of the week, my friend~ Vicki

The tussie mussie looks wonderful on the kitchen sill. Beautiful container for the larger bouquet on the garden bench.

How wonderful to find more gardening blogs. The mallows are such a soft lavender pink...they have a dreamy quality to them. Your foxgloves look spectacular in your banner photograph.

Hello Bella,

I love country style bouquets and yours is just so perfect! I love the shape of mallow flowers and they look just perfect with the fever few as well as in your containers and the tussie mussie.

I am so inspired at looking at what I can use for a container next month. Thank you so much for participating :-)
