Bouquet for a friend

Yesterday we took a bouquet of flowers to a friend of ours who just had knee surgery. I picked the flowers and Michael put them together. These are daffodils, hellebores, star magnolia and Harry Lauder's walking stick.

  1. How lucky you are to have such beautiful things growing in your garden, and to be able to share them with your friend. How lucky your friend is to be the recipient!

  2. Somebody has some SERIOUS talent. That bouquet is beautiful. Love the wisps of the HL walking stick. Only a gifted eye would know to use them to such good effect.

  4. Hi Phillip, how cheering a bouquet and how sweet of you to offer flowers from your garden. Those are way more special than purchased ones. Daffodils are one of the only flowers I will cut to bring inside, if bad weather is predicted to ruin the petals. I do hope your friend has a fast and full recovery.

  10. Now that beautiful arrangement would cheer up even a dead man walking. I hope your friend "got" the neat symbolism of your HL Walking Stick sprigs with the knee surgery. BTW, do you have good luck rooting HL cuttings?

  15. You're so lucky to have so much blooming to actually be able to make such a full arrangement. I'd make one too but my one blooming hellebore stem would look lonely in a big ole vase! I guess I expect too much from a 3 year old garden. thanks for brightening my day with your bouquet.

  16. Are those hellebores I see? I'm so jealous! Mine have just not performed well over the last few years, in spite of organic amendments. That's a beautiful arrangement. I've got two Harry Lauder's and love their quirky twists and turns.
