One of my favorite things about summer is being able to walk outside and cut fresh flowers. There might not be a bunch to choose from but all summer long I can find something to bring in. Right now I have daisies, black-eyed susan’s and a few hydrangeas. (Very few. Not a bumper crop this year.) I also have herbs that seem to need cut all the time so I usually bring them in as well. This lemon and flower arrangement is easy and super fast to put together. Here’s what you need:
I used this sort of square vase and for the smaller one I used a juice glass. Anything will work as long as you have a bit of room around the inner vase to fit lemon slices. Step 1 is to place the smaller vase inside the bigger one. Add your lemon slices and water. Arrange flowers and herbs of your choice and voila! A beautiful, easy fresh flower arrangement that will last for days.
To get a little extra life out of any flower arrangement, when the blooms start to droop, I cut all the ends off about an inch and change the water. Sometimes I can get several more days out of an arrangement.
I’ve got a couple more posts coming up in my “It’s Still Summer” series. If you missed the first two just click the image below!
Have a perfect day…see you tomorrow!
