Thistle Inspiration

The inspiration for this bouquet I made started with a bunch of thistle growing in Mr. Livings and my garden in Oregon. To which I added Queen Anne's lace, lavender foliage, chives, oregano, nasturtium foliage, some lovely and bright summery flowers, and a few other of nature's offerings from the garden. I really like the way this seasonal bouquet turned out...and the sculptural qualities of some of the materials that I gathered.

Like all of us this bouquet is...Every angle...another side...


Here, below, is a photo of our sweet cat, Miss Meow, in our dining room at home, where my bouquet I made of flowers, kitchen herbs, and thistle is on our dining room table:

She is just the sweetest, isn't she? Mr. Livings and I love her so much!
