Something new is going on around here.
Something that hasn't ever really happened before.
Inspired by another blogger who posted that peonies & roses are "cutting flowers." They aren't made to fall flat on their faces but rather to grace tables. (I wish I could remember which blogger ~ I was randomly stumbling around the Internet when I came across it.)
I've read that before & know many people who cut bouquets from their gardens ~ but this time, it resonated. Who knows why now?
David Austin roses were selected, clipped & arranged in a sweet little vase (a gift from my bestie this past Valentine's Day)
which in turn inspired a gathering. I mean, truly, could such a pretty little bouquet go unadmired? I think not. People (besides ourselves) needed to be called in to perform such accolades!
Peanut butter sandwich cookies were whipped together to lure them in:
iced tea was brewed, and viola, a garden tea party was born.
All because words were typed, a heart was open & the mind finally receptive.
Makes a person wonder why it took so long...
What we know for certain is that the clippers will be seeing a lot more action! :-)
