Happiness in Jar

Backyard Blossoms 


  The first of many to come...



 If you've been following along my Backyard Flower Farm posts you know that I'm a new grower of cut flowers this year! I'm proud to show you the first " jar of happiness" to be cut and arranged for a hostess gift!


 Here they are ready to go!  
Who doesn't love fresh cut flowers?

The ribbon and tag are from Michael s Craft Store. 

Inside the jar are zinnias, cosmos, poppies, tiger lilly, butterfly bush, verbena and snapdragons, cone-flower and delphinium!
Enjoy!

I'm gonna dosado with this post on over to the Homestead Barn Hop

I always need to see flowers. When I cannot see them outside, I buy them for the house.
