Quote of the Day: Gary Cadwallader

June 7th, 2015

“Flowers should be placed, in their most natural form, into vessels that enhance their beauty”

-Gary Cadwallader from Wabi Sabi House

Poppy in vase
This week I’ve been enjoying poppies in my little vase on the kitchen window. I try to cut one flower to put in there a few different times each week.

Are you cutting any flowers from you garden this week? What’s your favorite container and place to display them?

    I have a small vase of lilies of the valley. They smell so sweet.

    Enjpying peonys at the office and living room! The bright pink and wonderful fragrance makes me smile every time!

    Susy, the flowers for me are best enjoyed outside. I really like to enjoy them longer than cut flowers. My patio is lined with blooming flowers just the way I like them. I know I’m just not much for decorating the interior of a home. My house is pretty plain and functional. Most of my effort goes into the outside.

    Have a great cut flower day.

This is a daily journal of my efforts to cultivate a more simple life, through local eating, gardening and so many other things. We used to live in a small suburban neighborhood Ohio but moved to 153 acres in Liberty, Maine in 2012.
