An early morning bouquet was made to take to my husband's mother. It needed to be quick (it was already time to go) and had to be able to travel in a small space. She also has poor vision and the arrangement needed to be fragrant. I checked for roses, but they are temporarily on vacation.
The arrangement ended up being the standby kind. Zinnias which are abundant. Cosmos which bloom their hearts out. Add to those a bit of monarda and a bit of white salvia.
The wind was abundant this morning too which made photo ops quick too.
For fragrance I added sweet basil, oregano in bloom and some sprigs of lavender.
Nothing spectacular, but fun to photo play with. The picture above and below show slightly different effects on the borders.
As I edit I scroll through the colors and watch the effects. The thrill of play!

Hope they brightened her day...now go enjoy yours!
