Finding The Perfect Flower Arrangement

I am thinking of flowers!  Actually, I always am, I get all sort of mail in my inbox and mailbox. 

I suppose if I were to have an addiction it would be flowers! 

I justify a weekly trip to my local garden center by telling myself I will just buy a 4 inch pot this week!!

One of my dreams was to own my own florist shop-My husband and I actually flew to Boston to look at a KaBloom franchise many years ago.

Sadly enough their research determined that demographically we wouldn't be successful.

So, I grow my own  and enjoy them!

Please enjoy some arrangements I have picked for various times

of the year.

I must admit I am a fan of mercury glass- pink peonies and tulips! This sings Spring to me and the glass just showcases the blossoms so well!

Naturally, hydrangeas must always be a consideration

Isn't this one the cutest thing ever-

Such an incredible bouquet-gorgeous and timeless Peonies.

So perfect for a special Valentine Dinner...

Gorgeous For Any Time of the Year

So rich, warm and wonderful, maybe for a

Christmas gathering?

Do you have any favorite flowers to share?


Jemma's home is a quiet spot nestled among the trees. You might find me writing, reading, or puttering in my Greenhouse, tweaking a recipe, crafting a wreath or loving on my grands. Always living with a grateful heart.


  1. So glad you have your flower children! Hehe (: You grow the prettiest flowers, I wish I got your green thumb! Love you!

  2. So pretty! My favorite flower is the Tulip. My wedding bouquet was full of them. :) (talu)

  3. These are gorgeous. I think pink roses are among my favorite flowers. Susan

  4. Oh so pretty! My favorites are "friendly" flowers. Like geraniums. And daisies. And sunflowers.
    Thanks for linking this up with the TALU!

  5. The photos are beautiful. I especially like your tulip bouquet, but my all-time favorites are lilacs. I'm visiting from Pink Saturday.

  6. Your photos are lovely and I like all these floral choices! My youngest son, in college, in Kansas, has a date for Valentine's Day! He wants to give her flowers! So I am helping him find the right flower gift! I really love the red roses with the silver! So stunning together!
    HPS and thanks for sharing with us. I hope your week is wonderful!

  7. What more could one ask for? G=Thank you for the gorgeous flower pictures to brighten a cold dreary Monday morning. A great Pink Saturday find.

  8. Hi Jemma, (cute name by the way). I too am dreaming of spring! Can't wait till I have blooms in my garden. Till then your beautiful ones helped fill that void. It's easy to see that you certainly have a knack with flowers. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup. Happy to be following you.

  9. Jemma, we live in the Midwest and my spring flowers are coming up. I'm afraid here in Kansas we will surely get snow in March and ruin them. The weather has been so warm all winter--very unusual. I love the french marble pedestal--gorgeous. Happy Pink Saturday

  10. Jemma, Thanks for sharing this beautiful post. The most beautiful floral arrangements I have ever seen. These are my dream Valentine Day Flowers arrangements.


Thank you so much for visiting me, I always enjoy hearing from you, your comments make my day!
