First Garden Bouquet of the Year

This may not quite be a bouquet of many flowers, but it is the first vase of blooms from my garden this year. All from the Lilac shrub, which is in full flower at the moment. It is so nice to smell the scent of fresh flowers from the garden in the house again.

I am hoping for more varied bouquets of cut flowers, as I have sowed quiet a few new varieties in the past few months. Asters, Zinnia (inspired by the BBC's Allotment Challenge program), dwarf Phlox, Diascia and more dwarf Sunflowers.

  1. I love lilac. Like you I have been trying to grow more cut flowers this year. I have sown lots of dwarf sunflowers this year but sadly my zinnias keep getting eaten!

  5. Lilacs are definitely one of my favourite flowers, they look and smell absolutely divine! These look so beautiful, and have definitely inspired me to go and buy some seeds so I can grow some at home :)
