I have yet to really get the courage to cut flowers to put in vases in my house. I am always torn between cutting and letting them stay in the yard. To cut or not to cut, that is the question! Laugh if you must but it really is a dilemma. Most people I am sure do not have my hesitancy to cut flowers for vases. The problem I think more often than not is what to plant that would work in a vase or arrangement? Of course the traditional roses or carnations pop into mind, but those are just the tip of the ice berg lettuce! Bells of Ireland are a fun yet not as traditional flower for the garden that looks great in a vase, sweet daisies and sunflowers, delphiniums are just a few of the flowers that are nice for cutting. I read somewhere that it can be hard to cut the flowers in a garden since each one has its place in creating the look you want. They suggested a cutting garden. What a great idea! A real solution if you ask me and the best of both worlds if you have the space. I think I smell a project coming on in my notebook of ideas for spring( if you don’t have one I would highly recommend starting one!). Go out and create!
