Simple Centerpiece

Hi everyone!
Well, it wasn't easy... but I managed to come up with some red, white and blue flowers from the yard for my little centerpiece!
We need rain badly here in Philly! Ma gave me a clump of the little daisies years ago, I really enjoy them and they do last in the yard for quite a long time, especially for perennials. Bachelor buttons seem to offer the closest "true" blue of any flower, and a few geranium clippings round out the red, white and blue!

I'll be joining the following parties, please stop over to see what everyone else is talking about!

  3. Your centerpiece is sweet. Only blue blooming in our yard is the plumbago. I need to plant some bachelor buttons. Like you say, it's the perfect color! My geraniums aren't blooming much at the moment. They don't like the heat. Happy Blue Monday! ~ Sarah

  4. Love your cute arrangement. I use lots of daisies too and geranium...no buttons. I wonder if they grow in my area, are they hardy? They are so pretty.

  14. Very pretty. I like that this isn't as over-the-top as some settings. Especially considering i'm Australian so I guess I just don't get the whole American patriot thing. haha

  20. Morning girl...love the flowers especially the bachelor buttons...I haven't seen those in years...when I was a little girl we lived next door to the sweetest little lady...she was like a grandmother to me and she had flowers everywhere in her yard but right outside her hedge fence was a huge clump of bachelor buttons that grew in the ditch..ohhhh I loved her and those flowers!!!! Thanks for bringing back that sweet memory....hope you have a great week! ~Picket~

  28. That is a nice patriotic arrangement. I love that vase!

    Thanks for your comment on my back yard post. I got a couple of those chairs when our next door neighbors moved out of the country over 20 years ago. I'm glad I did. One of them broke a few years ago, and my husband had it by the trash, but I drug it over to my compost area.
