August Bouquets

I'm sure I am not the only one who finds the month of August to be exactly that; A gust!
       A gust that billows in the epitome of summer time...

                     wheat bunch with hydrangea, zinnias and cosmos in a favorite old pitcher.

So far this month we have had two weddings, one  50th anniversary celebration, a week where I cooked for a camp, birthdays, beaches, boating, babysitting and we are not done yet!

The weeks and days feel like they are being whisked away,

                                    golden applesauce and glads...

which is why I love to gather bouquets.
It feels like preservation on many levels for me... the gathering, the placing, the enjoyment. 


A little like the last month of summer, (unofficially anyhow) 


                              do you see the L, O, V, E...

This is how we extend the moments; by arranging summer's bounty and beauty into decorative bouquets.  By being aware of the seasons blooms and knowing that is enough.


The tangible display of a hearts  unutterable.


and then cake pops. A sweet bouquet for the next celebration.
Thank you for visiting!
