My mom is (of course) an amazing gardener, and since I’ve been doing this flower project, I’ve had a whole new appreciation for her beautiful garden. She was nice enough to let me scavenge around the yard and grab some flowers – which was such a treat. There was a lot going on in the purple family, so I went with it, and tried to introduce some color into my bouquet repertoire. I love, love, love peonies, so I was pretty excited to add some of those into the mix, but probably my favorite flower was the chive, yes, the chive like you eat. They have these adorable spiky flowers, although they smell pretty strongly like onion. I also grabbed some mint to counteract it. You can’t really see it, but it smelled heavenly!
