Outdoor Vases

With the official start of summer, one of my favorite summer morning activities is arranging fresh cut flowers from the garden. It’s meditative to walk the grounds and find an unusual patterned vessel that can hold the latest flowers in bloom.  But do you extend your cut flower vases to the outdoor living spaces?  Do you take your favorite blossoms from the garden and add a bright spot to an otherwise boring front door stoop?
A potted container full of summer annuals are a passion but it doesn’t give that otherwise daily versatility of a ‘pick and choose.’  With the assortment of summer blossoms popping up in the beds and borders, you can take them to an outdoor table, entry way - the choices can be endless.  And with plenty of green foliage in a variety of textures, shapes, and form, you can easily add a hint of plant life anywhere you choose.  

Yes, the containers full of summer annuals are instant splash but placing outdoor vases can give that same instant splash and be welcoming, too.  As Emily Dickinson poetically said, “How strange that nature does not knock, and yet does not intrude.”
