Favorite Cut Flowers in August

One of my favorite things about having space to grow is all the seeds I plant in early spring for cut flowers in late Summer.  Today I’m harvesting some of my favorites and in this post I’m going to share them with you.

On your Head!

I had the honor of meeting Mud Baron ( aka @Cocoxochitl ) at Muir Ranch last week and got to see him in action putting cut flowers on fabulous folks heads!  I was so busy networking … I forgot to take a photo of me and #flowersonyourhead .

On My Coffee Table

One of my favorite books about cut flowers is always on my coffee table in the family room.   This book is filled with great cut flower ideas including what to grow in your home garden.
