Harvest what you need for these fresh summer herb bouquets from your garden, or pick up some herbs from the grocery store. Very long-lasting and fragrant!
Here in Ohio, we are in the thick of summer. Lots of heat and humidity, dried out lawns, and herbs that are out of control! It is definitely the perfect time to share these fresh summer herb bouquets, because not only are they beautiful, they smell amazing. My garden hasn’t exactly broken any records this year when it comes to blooms, but the herbs are doing quite well. I picked up the dill and parsley at the grocery store, but the mint and basil are homegrown.
Fresh Summer Herb Bouquets
Any herbs will work, but here are some suggestions:

Along with the herbs, I also like to include some sort of garden flower. Use whatever you have that is in bloom, or whatever you can find at the grocery. Go colorful or neutral…or both. Right now, my only blooms are Annabelle hydrangeas and coneflowers. I used my all-time favorite vintage blue mason jars as vessels, and sprinkled them on our living room shelves.
The aroma from the herbs made me smile every time I walked in the room. Another good thing about fresh summer herb bouquets is that they are very long-lasting. These little arrangements lasted over a week. Every few days, I changed the water and snipped off the ends of the herbs.

I mentioned in yesterday’s post that I was going to be slowing down a bit in July. I hope to wrap up the bathroom renovations, and put our upstairs back together. Right now it’s a complete disaster. I’m not complaining though, because I know for sure that the upheaval will be worth it. I can’t wait to share it all with you. We’ve also planned some family time, and I’m praying that the latest COVID restrictions will allow us to be together. Time will tell on that.
Until next time…
