Bouquets of Gladness

Once or twice a month I like to buy a bouquet of flowers.
Fresh flowers have such a way of gladdening my heart and home. I don't feel the need to buy flowers from a florist when I can get beautiful budget bouquets at the grocery store.
This week I splurged and brought home two bouquets. There was such a wonderful assortment of flowers that I couldn't pick just one!
The first bunch that caught my eye were these
lovely gladiolas
Their size alone makes a great design statement. I chose to add some sea glass to help anchor the arrangement.
You can see why I had to buy these flowers. I've never seen anything like them before. They have a stem similar to a carnation but their heads look like a combination of a fern, grass, and a moss ball. I just couldn't resist!
I cut them short and placed them into a vintage pottery piece designed to look like bamboo. I'm excited to see how long they last.Do you buy grocery store bouquets to
gladden your heart and home?

Do you know the name of the second flowers? I love the color and whimsy of them.

Hi Carmie!
I'm sorry, I wish I knew the name. The packaging just said "seasonal." That's the one drawback of buying bouquets at the grocery store.

Wow, gorgeous flowers. I have never seen anything like the green ones before. I love to grow Zinnias to cut and bring indoors. The drought here in South Texas has made it difficult to grow anything this summer.
