My little Bachelors Button

001fhfdhb,b,b,bnm,

I am really pleased with this photo I took from my garden. Bachelors Buttons, also known as cornflower is the source of the color cornflower blue.  This beautiful flower retains its color very well when dried and is even edible, tasting similar to a clove

Paris rose sachet

My sister in laws birthday is next week  I made her this sachet that is lace edged and stuffed with  a small amount of batting, dried lemon geraniums that I grew myself,I added some Bulgarian Rose oil that I received as a gift, it smells delightful. I absolutely love this fabric and bought 10 yards of it on a whim, ( really funny when a friend dropped by and witnessed me trying to fold 30 ft of fabric) Hope you guys like the new photos trying to step up my photography. Image

I love this oil smells so good, and I really like the wooden container the vial came in.

Valentines Orchid Show

Every Valentines day week end my fiance takes me to a local orchid show, while I love all these beautiful exotic blooms, it is the amazing scent of orchids  that  pours out of the entrance  that I remember the most.

Dahlia Show

I Happend to come across a Dahlia show this weekend, I have 3 small plants myself that have yet to bloom successfully so it was nice to see them all in full bloom. I always liked Dahlias there are so many varieties, forms and colors ( no true black dahlias though) although this one was close

 so many beautiful flowers i had trouble deciding which to post so… this is going to be a long posting of mostly flowers

Seeing all of these really encourages me to grow some more varieties. I was suprised i didn’t see any dinner-plate dahlias though
