bottles and bud vases

No matter how established my garden becomes or how abundant the blooms I can’t bring myself to cut an actual bouquet. I would much rather see the blooms flourishing in the garden and watch the butterflies and bees feast on their nectar.

As a result I have an affinity (okay, obsession) with collecting vases that are perfect for just a few flowers. Some of my favorites are simple glass bottles such as these lemonata bottles. These are especially fun if you would like a bud vase at each place setting as I did on 4th of July. Each diner gets an up close view of each and every flower.
Goosestrife (invasive!), Helenium (hidden in back) and Ageratum
