I was kind of laughing at myself as I carried the bouquet around, posing it in different places for the best lighting. For this month I have rose 'Iceberg', Scabiosa, Verbena bonariensis, Liatris and Hosta and Solomon's Seal foliage.
The deck had good lighting too, except that I had to keep moving all the toys and rain boots from the background. You just never know what you will find when walking around the backyard, it's definitely obvious that kids play back here.
The Echinaceas are one of the stars of the garden right now. Trying to take them from the bees was a tricky job.
The Rose 'Iceberg' is blooming again. Verbena bonariensis are dropping their little flowers onto the petals of the roses.
Liatris 'Kobold' is another favorite of the bees right now. I just love these unusual flowers.
And in the background of my bouquet "photo shoot" was Gracie soaking up the sun. With Cookie the rabbit making the blog the other day, I thought it was only fair that Gracie show how she spends her time outside with us. You can also see that both the Pine tree and the big Japanese Maple are dropping needles/leaves already.
