We just returned today from a short trip to
 Des Moines, Iowa to visit family. 
 The weather has turned cooler
both here and there but I found
 flowers in our yard at home
for some
fun bouquets!  

My husband has allergies so rarely do I
have many flowers inside - these are
out on the porch entrance.

These green hydrangeas below
were in my Sister In Law's yard and
believe it or not - these were just a few of
the "little" ones she had.  Most were
 as big as watermelons and the biggest
I have ever seen before!

If you have not yet entered a comment

is last call as the drawing is tomorrow
in the post below!
I am sharing at:


  1. You have such a way with bouquets, Bernideen, and they look ever so lovely!

  2. You have the most beautiful flowers and use them to the best presentation.

  3. Welcome home, I hope you had a great trip! Any time for some antique malls?
    Your bouquets are always so beautiful! How do you ever have enough Foxgloves to cut some? When I finally get a stalk of blooms I don't dare cut it! lol
    Have a great rest of your week!

  4. Oh my...Wonderful flowers bouquet!You are an artist!Hugs.

  5. I love your bouquets! The hydrangeas look great. They should dry for you and then (maybe) you can bring them inside as they likely will not bother your husband's allergies.

  6. Bernideen, I love these! And you did a beautiful job with the hydrangeas - I've always had difficulty mixing them with other flowers.

  7. Beautiful bouquets from your garden!

  8. Love the pretty purple flowers in the first photo. Is that a teapot vase?

  9. Bernideen, your bouquets are gorgeous! You really have a knack for arranging. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  10. What gorgeous garden bouquets. I do love bringing in the flowers from the garden.

  11. I love the green hydrangeas! You have the loveliest flowers! Thanks for sharing at Home Sweet Home!

  12. Lindo, um encanto! Feliz semana! Cumprimentos
