It’s that time of year again where I am able to have fresh cut FREE, roadside flowers. A couple of years ago I did a weekly series on all the wildflowers in Michigan so I thought I would do it again this year for any new readers.
I love Michigan with all it’s variety of wildflowers. I have a fresh new bouquet of something different every week. I carry garden nippers in my purse and when I see something I like I just hop out of my Jeep and start cutting. My hubby is always rolling his eyes you would think by now he would be used to it. Why shouldn’t I take advantage of it. Mother nature has so kindly seeded them for just this purpose; to bring me happiness and joy, so I think.
Phlox don’t last long once tthey’re cut the tiny purple petals start falling off in about 3 days, but there stunning for those few days. Our cat has already discovered them and has helped in the petal shedding. She rubs against it so the arrangement isn’t pretty for long but I don’t have the heart to shoo her away. The daisies are also blooming right now and I will be back to show you those here soon. Do you have wildflowers in bloom in the state you live in?
